Brian grew up in the Midwest and spent his childhood summers exploring the US from coast to coast, but his most memorable experiences were visiting the National Parks of the West. This love for the great outdoors led him to study Geotourism, a sustainable tourism degree, at Missouri State University. During school, Brian had his first experience Down Under while working as an intern in the Sydney hospitality industry. During his time in Australia, Brian explored New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, and the Outback. His experiences on the coasts of Sydney, Melbourne, and the Great Barrier Reef region of Queensland inspired his love for Australasia. Since joining Audley Travel, he has returned to Australia to explore the less traveled Western Australia, as well as spending time adventuring on both the North and South Islands of New Zealand. In his free time, Brian enjoys hiking, kayaking, playing basketball, travel writing, and planning his next adventure.
