Chad grew up in southern Minnesota in a multicultural family with his father being Filipino and his mother of German descent. Chad’s passion for traveling started at a very young age as his father’s side of the family immigrated from the Philippines and made homage on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. Growing up, every winter Chad and his family would spend several weeks on the Hawaiian Islands visiting family and learning the Filipino/Hawaiian culture. Those trips to Hawaii opened the world to Chad from growing up in a small southern Minnesota town to see that there is so much more out there to see, experience and to learn about the cultural values of many different people and places.
During Chad’s high school years Chad took two summers and studied abroad in the United Kingdom and Ireland one summer and in New South Wales and Queensland, Australia the next summer. After high school Chad worked for the State of Minnesota for 13 years. During that time, he was fortunate enough to take several trips including multiple European countries, U.S. state trips, and a short mission trip to Kenya and Zambia in Africa. Chad recently has traveled to Vietnam and the French Polynesia including Tahiti and Bora Bora.
Chad’s experience has taught him to get out and experience the world and learn more about the awesome places and cultures that are out there to see. He is always willing to share his experiences and is willing to work with you and help you create the vacation/trip of your dreams. From a quick weekend getaway to a South Pacific excursion and anything in between Chad is there for you to make it yours.
“Get out and see the world, we only go around once. And enjoy some good food while you’re at it”
