Michael Verdirame


A native New Yorker, Michael Verdirame has been fortunate to grow up in the best city in the world for a lover of travel — a place where you can meet people from all over the world before getting on a plane to meet people from all over the world. He attended the University of Miami where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in both Communications and Theatre. It was while in college that he studied abroad in London, where his love of travel was born and his life was forever changed. He has since traveled to every continent (except Antarctica — one day!), and recently earned a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies from the CUNY Graduate Center.

Michael feeds his travel addiction by working as a flight attendant for a major airline, clocking in over 1,000 hours on over 300 flights every year. During his free time he loves to read (about travel — what else?) and spend time with his three adorable nieces.
