Get to Know Your Ghyd
Michael is originally from Almost Heaven West Virginia where being active and outdoors was a way of life. The mountains and water adventures are the most common theme in his travels and daily life as he is an ATV junkie, avid skier and loves to boogie board and SUP.
Michael possesses nearly 20 years of experience working in the US and abroad (Central America – mainly Costa Rica). This invaluable diverse work background in Finance and Investment Banking, Construction and Development, Real Estate Sales and Vacation Real Estate Management, which translates into a clear and resourceful person with whom to work with as he knows how to solve just about any problem and is always looking for improvements.
Throughout all of Michael’s diverse background, two constants have remained, a love of travel, family and charitable work. Working with GHYD has brought these worlds together. He oversees our site selection and operations to ensure our travelers experience wonderful memories for a lifetime.
I’m high maintenance, but a smile comes immediately comes when I think of a road trip in Costa Rica where we packed 7 people (myself and 6 women – 2 kids still in car seats), a week’s worth of food and gear into a Land Rover and drove 6 hours to stay off-the-grid in the Osa Peninsula in a simple camp on the beach.
