Shawn and Travis Pittman (brothers) co-founded the online travel site bugbitten.com back in 2003. TourRadar was spun-out of bugbitten in July 2010.
Travis is an Australian who has lived in Vienna for the past 9 years, after spending 4 years in London on a working-holiday visa. In his former-life, he graduated as a Mechanical Engineer from the University of Queensland in Brisbane and has worked in a range of public and private companies around the globe. The Internet and Travel seemed to find their way to Travis... who now can't imagine himself working in any other industry.
Shawn is based in Australia. His background has mostly been in the finance industry and was an Investment Analyst from 2001 to 2006 for a Venture Capital company based in London with investments in the UK, Europe and USA. He travelled frequently to New York, Boston, San Francisco, Moscow and Edinburgh to meet with other Venture Capital Funds. He has travelled to more than 30 countries, been on a numerous group tours and believes everyone should travel more to appreciate different cultures and learn more about themselves.
