Between his previous gig as director of marketing at Soludos and his new one running his own brand inspired by global wanderings, New Yorker Robert Wright is seriously well traveled.

Photo Essay: Park City

A spotlight shines on Park City, Utah every January when celebs and film execs clog its quaint streets for the Sundance Film Festival, but the ski town doesn’t need star power to entice visitors.
