Job Title: Destination Services Specialist
What It Should Be: Man Around (Down)Town
What You Shouldn’t Ask Him: “Want to taste something weird?”
Extroverted, driven, conscientious—and, okay, maybe just a bit eccentric. That’s how Drew Germain is described by those who know him best, and it’s just part of what he brings to his role as Destination Services Specialist. Throw in a dose of enthusiasm, a good sense of humor, and a sincere appreciation for all Colorado has to offer, and you start to get the bigger picture.
Born and raised in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Drew came to Denver by way of North Dakota. In fact, it was during his time at the University of North Dakota (UND) that he was first introduced to the Colorado landscape. A competitive diver, Drew and his UND team traveled to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs regularly, and it was those trips that would eventually influence him to move to the Centennial State for good.
Now a five-year resident of the Mile-High City, Drew soaks up Colorado living on a daily basis—and loves to share all that he’s discovered with those visiting or moving into the area. Whether it’s exploring various neighborhoods, checking out new restaurants and breweries, or taking a quick drive to Red Rocks or other nearby natural wonders, Drew relishes the opportunity to help newcomers become better acquainted with the area. And while Drew may be a bit of a daredevil when it comes to outdoor escapades like snowboarding across steep terrain or hiking in inclement weather, he admits that his daring sense of adventure does not extend to foods. So while he’s happy to introduce you to the legendary or latest and greatest eateries in the Denver Metro area, he may not be as quick to join you in sampling their unique cuisine or Rocky Mountain delicacies (but if it’s pizza or mac and cheese, he’ll be there for you).
Drew can be reached at email@example.com or 763-516-5277.

Five Little-Known Facts About Drew:
- Holds a bachelor’s degree in Entrepreneurship and master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of North Dakota.
- Once hiked a fourteener in mid-November, where he and his 4-pound Yorkiepoo encountered a herd of unyielding mountain goats amid an unexpected snowstorm. (No, he’s not likely to repeat that adventure anytime soon.)
- Is an avid runner who recently completed his first half marathon.
Serves as a Junior Olympic coach for a local dive club, where he can pass on his own passion and skills to the next generation of springboard and platform divers.
- Is an NFL fan who bleeds purple and orange. (Well, not exactly, but he can be found cheering for the Denver Broncos or Minnesota Vikings throughout the football season.)
“I love the idea of helping people fit into the city—and state—that I love so much. Denver is a phenomenal, vibrant city with so many great ‘nooks and crannies’ that there truly is something for everyone.”
Charity Challenge – Denver Animal Shelter
This year, Drew is raising funds for Denver Animal Shelter, an open-admission shelter that is home to more than 7,000 lost and abandoned pets each year. As a dog-lover himself—and owner of a 4-pound Yorkiepoo named Finley—helping homeless or abandoned animals is a cause that’s close to his heart.
