Join SF Travel Lit & Lectures on Thursday, May 23rd when we are thrilled to welcome Joe Diaz, Co-Founder of AFAR!
Joe Diaz is a Co-founder of AFAR Media. He is a deep believer that travel is the best form of education and the more people that travel in a curious and open-minded way, the better our world will be.
A seasoned world traveler, Joe spent his early years growing up in a bi-cultural family, with one foot in Spain and the other in California. That early exposure to the global village propelled Joe toward what he now considers his “calling”—learning about this fascinating and quirky world we live in through travel.
After graduating from Duke University, Joe spent three years working with Teach for America in the barrios of Phoenix, Arizona, before getting his masters degree and launching a successful real estate investment firm in Arizona. His travels have taken him extensively to four of the seven continents, with a goal to visit all seven.
AFAR's mission is "to inspire and guide those who travel the world seeking to connect with its people, experience their culture, and understand their perspectives". Learn more at www.afar.com
