Synchronicity, the Beauty and the Creature From The Black Lagoon: And the stage was set for Davarian’s future in adventure travel and photography.
Following a stint as a radio technician in the USMC, Davarian studied photography/film and computer science. During frequent breaks from his mastering of darkroom special effects Davarian could be found on his sailboat on a Caribbean Island or backpacking across the Andes Mountains or by river canoes into the Amazon Rainforest.
With the advent of the World Wide Web Davarian’s expertise in computer coding, travel writing and photography led him to management positions in web site architecture, travel marketing, and logistical services for professional photographers/media organizations.
Davarian’s writings and photography have been publish in National Geographic Adventure, promotional materials for the State of Florida and the country of Peru, as well as on scores of commercial travel web sites.
Expeditions organized by Davarian include those for National Geographic, The Explorer’s Club, Slate Magazine, and the Washington Post.
