Meet Dave

Your travel partner.

As a student learning abroad, David discovered how travel can change a person’s perspective on the world. As a band director traveling with his students, he learned that introducing others to the world around them is even more exciting. His work at BRT allows him to infuse all he’s learned as both student and director into each experience he plans – whether the destination is stateside or abroad. With his own travel memories close to heart, David loves planning opportunities for students to experience new places and cultures, creating their own, life-changing memories.

My favorite travel memory

I studied abroad in London and was able to travel around Europe.  I visited the UK, Ireland, Italy, France, the Netherlands and Norway.  It was an experience I will never forget! I also will never forget marching around Cinderella’s castle in Magic Kingdom, both as a student and as a director.

My hobbies and pastimes

I love to travel and experience new places, but also revisit my favorites.  I play the French horn, basketball and love to play with my pug, Lillie.

My favorite book

My favorite books are the Harry Potter series.  The first book came out when I was in middle school, so I could relate to Harry and his path through school.  The series was the first time I could not put a book down!

Moments that Matter …


I had a wonderful experience with the company. Dave and Jennifer worked very hard to accommodate a lot of super specific requests, a limited budget and lots of questions from me as this was my first time leading a trip. Everyone I interacted with through BRT has been helpful, kind and easy to work with.
