Another Shade of Blue with Ty Sawyer: The Host
Ty Sawyer has been traveling non-stop since he was a kid growing up in England and Germany. His military family went on adventures nearly every weekend of his life. So, Ty’s travel bug is more than a full-blown affliction, it’s probably genetic. He cut his professional teeth for 20-years in the trenches of the magazine world, working his way up from the coffee-getter to Editor-in-Chief in a short 2-years. Since then, he’s been defining and redefining travel-based magazines with his keen understanding of what drives us to get out and see the world. He’s a noted speaker, travel expert for the Travel Channel, tireless seeker, and passionate about almost everything. A self-confessed food, wine and book snob, he does nothing halfway and tries to get as much out life as he possibly can.
A true renaissance man, writer, adventurer, photographer, equally adept having dinner with the queen, or eating off a banana leaf in Vanuatu. Ty revels in life, and lives it with a passion for the moment.
As an award winning travel photographer; 2010 recipient of the Diver of the Year Award and the ICON Award, a Fellow National in the renowned Explorers Club, each week is guaranteed to be a breathtaking no hold’s barred adventure.
A gifted storyteller, Ty Sawyer’s travels have taken him around the world in a quest to discover corners of the globe that definitely say you’re not in suburbia anymore. If there’s an alleyway, side of the road eatery, detour or what Ty calls a shiny thing that diverts him, usually someplace completely unexpected, that’s where you’ll find him. He’ll talk to just about anyone and always does. He has a nose for what’s authentic, for what defines the raw, real, strange, interesting and awe-inspiring cultural landscapes of our world. He takes his award winning writing style and photographic eye on journeys of discovery that make you feel, taste, see, and understand the beating heart of a place. You’ll find him standing on the edge of an erupting volcano to get a better shot and feel the rumble, he’s been wooed by women in remote island villages, been rammed by sharks, and had eerie experiences in cannibal skull caves in New Guinea. All in a day’s work, all on assignment.
