David Jones | Co-Founder & Chairman
David was a travel guru from the moment he was born, and created his first travel agency at the ripe old age of 10. Throughout his life-long career in the travel industry, David noticed a dramatic shift in the demands of the market: Rather than worrying about thread counts and over-the-top amenities, the focus for many travelers -- particularly within the millennial generation -- is now about making new connections, finding new points of view, broadening their horizons, self-discovery, and personal enrichment. With that vision in mind, David launched Nomad Hill in 2016 to create truly life-changing experiences for our travelers.
