About the speaker

Rick Marino

As a band tour manager for more than 15 years, Rick Marino was always eager to explore the hidden gems and roads less traveled in the cities he visited. Late-night concerts and life on a tour bus didn’t allow for that, though. Now devoting only part of his time to touring with rock stars, Rick has launched a new career: hosting a travel TV show called State x State, airing on the PlanesTrains+Automobiles (thePTA.com) network, part of Delta’s in-flight entertainment. A resident of the desert, he spends his free time exploring the many beautiful places within reach. You can read his travel column, Road Trip Rick, in DESERT magazine.
