Steve grew up in New England but has called some amazing places home over the years. From Sydney, Australia to San Francisco, California to Greenville, South Carolina where he currently resides, his love for experiencing all ends of the Earth coincides with living in amazing places too. With over a decade of experience creating & leading one-of-a-kind adventures around the world, Steve’s passion for travel, adventure, and people shines through on each journey. His attention to detail, kind demeanor, and ability to adapt to any situation make him an excellent adventure creator and Tour Director.
“I wanted to create unique, off the path experiences all over the world for a community of travel lovers like me. There were too many cookie-cutter tours on the market and a real need for authentic adventures where travelers get up close and personal with the local people, culture, food, landscapes, and everything in between.” – Steve Juba, PhotoFly Travel Club Founder
As a full-time Tour Director, Andrew Skarvinko leads and guides tours that are thought-provoking, experiential, and fun. Since 2016, he has taken members to more than 20 different countries on tours that range from the bustling megacities like Tokyo to the wide-open grasslands of the Serengeti. Because he is privileged to have one of the greatest jobs in the world, you can expect to share in his enthusiasm and passion for exploring all corners of the world. When he’s not on the road (which is rare), he resides in Boston, Massachusetts where he spends his time running, attending concerts, and cooking with friends.
Cătălin has been with PhotoFly Travel since 2017. Currently living in Romania (Eastern Europe), he loves to travel with family and friends. If you’re going to see him in one of our travel photos or videos, there’s a high chance that he’ll have a beer in one hand, his phone in the other (you know, just to see if everything PhotoFly Travel-related is on track), and with a big smile on his face. In his free time he likes to watch football, visit family, and re-watch “The Office” for the tenth time this year.
Cătălin plays an important role in developing our travel club and making sure the backend infrastructure keeps up with our evergrowing member base. With a background in content marketing & project management, he has a knack for finding the best tools and people we need to grow as an organization. If you encounter issues with our website, payment system, or anything at all, just email us, and Cătălin will have it up and running in no time.

Michelle plays an integral role in the travel club, helping bridge the gap between all the processes that go before we get our guests on exciting adventures. Her precise attention to detail and swift response time make her a great asset for our travelers during the planning stages and up until the wheels lift off the tarmac!
