About Us

Maas Media is a blog, or a personal website, created and maintained by me, Patrick Maas. Maas Media features posts about my political and religious views, world economy opinions, travel industry insight and other interesting (to me at least) articles that I write while on the road for my travel industry job (you know, the paying job).

Please read the stories I’ve written then leave me your feedback in the comments.

About me

My name is Patrick Maas and I live in Northern New Jersey with my wife and my two kittens. I was born in southern Holland and speak fluent Dutch. I moved to South Florida when I was 18 years-old and lived there over 20 years before relocating to the New York metro.

I’ve worked in the travel industry for almost 20 years where I’ve held data analytics, reporting and project management roles at fortune 1000 companies (for more about the business side of me, visit my LinkedIn profile). Besides being interested in travel, I’m also a political junkie and I’m passionate about world economics. I’m into food / wine / beer so you might see comments about those and I have an affinity for sports: NFL, NHL, NASCAR, boxing and more. You can reach me via email at info AT patmaas [dot] com.

All photographs on Maas Media were taken by Patrick Maas, unless otherwise noted. In general I don’t mind if my photos are republished on other sites as long as there’s a link back to the post from which the photo’s taken. I maintain the right to withdraw that permission, and request that a photo of mine be removed from another site, for any reason.

Thanks for visiting Maas Media!
