He worked for Tahiti Tourisme for sixteen years in marketing and communications and as managing director for six years. An avid yogi, map lover and traveler, Jonathan joined Tourism Fiji in August of 2017 to head up public relations in North America.

About Your Host
Aaron Schlein is a family man, entrepreneur, and podcaster who knows first-hand about the transformational power of family travel.
When Aaron was a teenager, he began exploring the world with his grandmother, Shirley Schlein—to whom he is eternally grateful for igniting his passion for travel. Becoming a father inspired Aaron to pay forward his grandmother’s generosity and create media content to inspire parents to travel the world with their kids.
In the summer of 2018, Aaron partnered with the Family Travel Association to produce its official podcast, Family Travel Radio. Aaron lives in Sacramento, CA with his wife and two children (who are growing up too fast!)
