About Me:
Mark Orwoll has been a journalist for more than 40 years. For 29 years he was on the editorial staff of Travel + Leisure magazine, where he was the longest tenured staffer in the magazine's history, held more editorial titles than anyone (six), wrote more than 2,000 articles and blog posts, was the magazine's first International Editor, and was the managing editor for 10 years, longer than any other m.e. at the magazine. He has traveled to more than 70 countries, and written about most of them. Since leaving T+L for semi-retirement in 2016, Orwoll has been a freelance writer, publishing in a wide range of travel and lifestyle magazines and websites. He has appeared as a travel expert more than 500 times on television, including NBC Today Show (more than 70 appearances), CBS Morning Show, ABC Good Morning America, and PBS NewsHour, as well as programs on CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, and local broadcast stations around the United States. He won an Aegis Award of Excellence for co-producing a documentary for NBC News on the launch of a cruise ship. He's also a pretty good mandolin player.
