A true citizen of the world, Steve has transformed his unique life experience and passion for travel into a successful career in educational travel.  Born in Germany to a Spanish mother and English father, he spent his childhood in Bahrain, Kenya, England, Spain, Portugal, Brazil, Mexico and Peru.  He attended Bristol University in England, where he studied Spanish and Portuguese and led groups of students on educational programs through Spain and Portugal during school breaks.

Upon graduation, he led groups abroad most of the year, while taking time for his own travel adventures with family and friends, including motor biking throughout the United States, cycling along the Camino de Santiago and hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

Along the way, he made his mark at various educational travel companies, managing sales, marketing, operations and product development.  Over 20 years and hundreds of successful tours later, Steve realized his dream of creating a travel company with a tight focus on academic content and cultural enrichment with the founding of Hart Travel Partners.

Steve has made his home just southwest of Boston, MA.  His two beautiful children of course, have their own little suitcases!
