Roseann Hanson

Arizona, United States
Armed with an iPhone4S and MacBook Pro, my office is anywhere I am: in my Land Cruiser in Mexico’s Sierra Madre, in a tent on the Serengeti, or in a cafe in southern Arizona while on a backcountry motorcycle tour.

As the founder and CEO of Overland Expo, North America’s largest event for do-it-yourself adventure travel enthusiasts, and an ex-officio board member and manager of the charity ConserVentures, my work takes me around the globe promoting travel and conservation. As a longtime print journalist and author of adventure travel and nature guidebooks, I love combining traditional and modern communications—the analog and digital—to encourage people to get out and explore the world.

Through ConserVentures, my husband Jonathan and I use our business and communication skills to help communities increase capacity and success for their wildlife and cultural conservation projects. I also love integrating communications, conservation, science, outdoor skills, cultural awareness, and travel into my work.

When not traveling, we work from our solar-and wind-powered home office in a remote corner of the the Sonoran Desert. ConserVentures.org, OverlandExpo.com, TheConstantApprentice.com
