About Your Host

Aaron Schlein visited 12 countries on four continents before his 18th birthday—all thanks to the generosity of his grandmother. The impact of those trips convinced him that travel is an essential part of life.

Becoming a father inspired Aaron to become an advocate for youth travel and create media content that encourages parents to travel with their kids.

“Traveling adds immeasurable positivity to my life.” Aaron says. “I’m working to ensure that young people have the same inspiration and opportunity to explore that world that I had.”

Aaron is the founder of Dramatic Media LLC—a multi-media company that promotes the power of travel through video, audio, photo, and written content.

Aaron is also the host of Family Travel Radio—a podcast presented by The Family Travel Association and produced by Dramatic Media LLC.

Aaron lives in Sacramento, California with his wife and two children (who are growing up too fast!)
