Joe Diaz is the co-founder of travel’s most critically acclaimed, multi-platform media company, AFAR Media. Founded by Diaz and co-founder Greg Sullivan in 2009, AFAR inspires, guides, and enables the world’s best travelers to have deeper, richer, and more fulfilling experiences. AFAR’s innovative and award-winning platforms include AFAR Magazine, AFAR.com, AFAR Experiences, AFAR in Residence, and AFAR Conversations.
As co-founders of AFAR, Joe and Greg passionately believe that travel is the best form of education. The more we can enable our youth to travel the world in a meaningful way, the more they can transform their lives, their communities, and the world around them. To that end, AFAR’s non-profit arm, Learning AFAR, has sent over 1,000 low income students on life changing adventures. “Learning AFAR runs to the core of everything we do at AFAR,” says Diaz.
In addition to his daily responsibilities at AFAR, Joe is an accomplished speaker and frequently lends his expertise on a variety of topics, including travel trends, startups, brands, entrepreneurship, innovation through digital media, and more.
