In 1995, Don joined Natural Habitat Adventures. Originally hired as the private group coordinator, he worked mainly with museums, zoos, alumni associations and other non-profit groups. He also served as a “city guide” in Halifax for Nat Hab’s Harp Seal Watch program and in Winnipeg for Polar Bear Watch, and was also the company's Uganda destination manager. After a hiatus from Nat Hab, Don returned in 2007 as director of travel industry relations. In July 2008, he was elected a member of the VAST (Virtuoso Active & Specialty Travel) committee for a 3-year term.
With his Utah roots and more than 24 years living in Colorado, it's not surprising that Don loves to ski, hike and mountain bike. He also enjoys playing soccer with several Nat Hab staffers, but traveling to wildest places on the planet is Don’s favorite pastime.
