Quest Experiences Back Story

When I was 10 years old I saw Raiders of the Lost Ark in the movie theater...and that single event changed the course of my entire life. I was so enthralled with the concept of digging up archaeological treasures that I began creating my own (for my younger brother.) The years leading up to college were filled with learning how to make historical treasures of my own, antiquing techniques of my own and writing storylines so that my adventures weren't simple treasure hunts...they were actual adventures for people to go on.

I struggled in college to find a 'treasure hunt design' major :) - I tried theater arts, studio art, archaeology/anthropology and more. I finally got a degree in Art History. I graduated and started my own company Quest Experiences. Since then (1995) I've helped folks find lost golden idols in a true Indiana Jones fashion, seek out the Holy Grail like an actual knight and even hunt for vampires in an old Transylvanian town....I even helped someone live out the life of Batman for the day (long story...)

Once my sons were born I refocused my attention on creating smaller adventures online so that I could stay home to be with them. Although perhaps it wasn't the most lucrative decision, it's one I could never regret!

Creating adventures is my passion - and now that my youngest is about to graduate high school in a year (2020) I'm looking to begin creating large scale adventures again...this time, all over the world! I'm beginning with the United States as I've recently launched hunts for over 100 theme parks, 130 zoos and literally hundreds of universities! Once my son graduates, my wife and I plan on touring the country to create large scale adventures everywhere!
