Robert G. Rose is a successful social and media entrepreneur, producer and host of Raw Travel ®. After flirting with long term travel for years, in 2008 Rose sold his successful startup media company and had the opportunity to live and travel abroad full time. This experience cemented his love of travel and produced life changing moments that inspired Rose to share his experiences by developing a show that would focus on authentic travel in a socially aware context.
This idea became reality in 2013 when Raw Travel ® premiered. Today the show can be seen in over 150 U.S. cities and several countries around the world as well as on a variety of airlines and digital platforms.
Raw Travel lays claim to being the most watched authentic travel show on U.S. commercial television, broadcast or cable.
Raw Travel’s rapid rise lies in its DIY (Do It Yourself) approach to both filmmaking and travel. With a relentless mission of showcasing less publicized destinations and doing good while having fun, the show combines themes such as eco-tourism, voluntourism (giving back), underground music and subcultures.
Rose has visited over 50 countries and counting. When not traveling or working on Raw Travel, Rose reads voraciously, volunteers, blogs and runs his production company AIM Tell-A-Vision Group (AIM TV) and digital record label, “Punk Outlaw Records” .

My name is Tim and I love traveling as much as I love marketing, music and art. For me it was a great opportunity to work with the Raw Travel team to help to produce and market this awesome show.
It’s raw and it’s real, this is what coming from our hearts – this what we love to do. Raw Travel is made by people with love to travel, ordinary people like you and me, people who want to share their passion to traveling with the rest of the world!
