Meet Our Team
Terry is a deaf American with Italian bloodlines who now lives in Rome, Italy. After graduating from Gallaudet University, he came here in search of “la dolce vita” (the sweet life). In 2002 he established Hands On Travel to share his love of Europe with deaf travelers. His passions are traveling, reading, food, and sports.
Dan has been to 81 countries including Bolivia, Cuba, Morocco, Myanmar, North Korea and Oman. He has also presented at Deaf Youth Leadership Camps in Germany and Thailand as well as team-coordinating an exchange program between two deaf schools in Kentucky, USA and Kamensk, Russia.
Darren was raised in a nomadic family in USA and held many occupations: teacher, actor, photographer, filmmaker, carpenter, chef and more. Of his 60+ countries, his favorites are Japan, Chile; Finland (Suomi). Twice, he was an expat for 8 years in Finland and Cambodia. Darren resides in Tacoma, Washington, with his deaf family, Ronise and Franki.
Charles manages our finances, taking care of all the small details that cannot be swept under the carpet. He worked at Gallaudet University for many years before retiring to move down southwest where the sun shines much more often. He keeps himself occupied with gardening and traveling.
