From an early age Frank Scotti, founder of Nomad Inc., knew he wanted to share his love for adventure and travel with the world. Seeking out powder stashes on a homemade snowboard at the local golf course, building jumps for bikes, and sneaking out for all-night fishing missions were a regular occurrence from day one. Having his mom drag him home kicking and screaming, bike in one hand and shovel in the other, were the norm.

As soon as Frank could, he headed west from his roots in Long Island, NY to pursue his outdoor passions. After spending time in the Rocky Mountains of beautiful Colorado he knew there was more and his craving for adventure and new experiences grew. Frank’s travel experience is geographically vast and spans the spectrum of adventure including many surf trips in Central America; climbing, surfing, and snowboarding in South America; scuba diving in Southeast Asia; helicopter skiing in Alaska; whitewater kayaking in New Zealand; and multiple excursions throughout the U.S.

His stories of such experiences are not without a fair amount of humorous anecdotes, however they also contain tales of meticulous detail and preparedness that make listeners gravitate towards his leadership and creative qualities. As his travel resume increased so did his gallery of photographs that captured indelible moments in beautiful detail and clarity.

Frank holds a Bachelor’s Science Wilderness Leadership with a minor focus in Cultural Studies from Prescott College in Arizona. In addition, Frank spent two and a half months in Patagonia on a NOLS adventure leadership program.
