Thanks for visiting! I’m Mark File, a North Carolina native who loves to share my passion for travel – both in my state and around the world. Based high in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Banner Elk, NC, I specialize in travel & tourism marketing consulting. I especially enjoy working with destinations, independent inns, small attractions and non-profits. Read more about me.
