Frank Fish began his business career managing concerts and events for Ambassador Auditorium, a Southern California premier concert venue. While working with the non-profit, Ambassador Foundation, Frank was introduced to, and developed a friendship with a unique educator, cultural liaison and business entrepreneur, Dr. Richard Liu, Panda North America. Together they created a number of ground breaking exchanges between China, Canada and the United States.
The China cultural work led to the formation of Travel Gallery Inc. where Frank Fish serves as President. Major projects have included the 1985 visit of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand to California, the first US tour of the Little Ambassadors of Shanghai, and a full charter of Holland America's flagship, the MS Rotterdam.
He has hosted cruises and planned and escorted major tours for churches, college & high school music ensembles and community groups to the People's Republic of China, Japan, Italy, England, Scotland, Slovenia, Austria, Russia, Israel, Turkey, Greece, Egypt, Thailand, and various countries in Africa. Frank is a member of Rotary International.
