More About the Author
In 2000, fun-loving, single father Jeff Siegel embarked on a spur-of-the-moment vacation with his son Spence that took them across the southwestern tier of National Basketball Association arenas. Shortly thereafter, Siegel formulated a grandiose plan: he and Spence would visit every NBA arena and Major League Baseball park in the United States.
What started as a series of hilarious road games and unexpected tours turned into a journey that would change everything for the Siegel and his son. Through their quest, Jeff and Spence have re-imagined the classic road trip and invented a new model for a family vacation - the RelationTrip.
Siegel shares his sage advice in an inspiring and engaging new book, RelationTrips: A Simple, Powerful Way to Bond with Your Loved Ones Through Personalized Road Trips. With genuine energy and enthusiasm, Siegel recounts his experiences traveling with Spence and offers tips and secrets to help other families design, plan and execute RelationTrips around their unique hobbies and interests. Part memoir, part guidebook, RelationTrips provides families with a practical road map for building enduring connections and creating trips filled with adventure, imagination, discovery and fun.
Siegel is an articulate, engaging resource for reporters, bloggers and show hosts. He has entertained audiences and shared his wit and wisdom on morning news programs including "Showcase Minnesota," "FOX 9 Morning News," and "Monsters & Money," as well as provided RelationTrips tips to Better Homes & Gardens, the Washington Post, the Denver Post, the Times Record, KMBC-TV, KCTV 5 and the WDLJ-FM Morning News.
With decades of experience creating dynamic presentations for Fortune 500 companies as a creative director, Siegel knows how to share his message with enthusiasm. He appears regularly as a speaker, sharing the RelationTrips story and teaching audiences of all shapes and sizes how to create these magical journeys on their own.
When not planning an adventure with his son, Siegel is a creative director and independent marketing / communications consultant. Fortune 500 companies such as Nestle, Sears, McDonald's, and Motorola have regularly called on Siegel to direct national meetings, product launches and marketing campaigns.
