Among Trey’s many lifelong pursuits, boat life and the outdoors remain at the top of the list. An avid fisherman, Trey grew up in Texas exploring the great inshore fisheries of the Texas Gulf Coast, and the escape and solitude of her Highland Lakes. He began his love for big game fishing on trips to Cabo San Lucas in the 1980s, and has fished all over the world - from the Amazon to Borneo, Cairns to Central America, ever since.

 

After graduating from Texas Tech, Trey moved to Washington DC, where he spent more than a decade in politics - half of that time at the White House, and three years as a spokesman for President George W. Bush.

He left abroad, starting his own public relations and business development consultancy in Panama. There, he led high-level trade development missions with the states of Florida and Georgia, and advanced the burgeoning film and tourism industries for government clients. He brought Panama the Ironman Triathlon, still operating today. 

Trey will tell you his proudest achievement there were his contributions to marine conservation. Combined with deep-seated connections in the public and private sector and his hard-earned knowledge of Panama’s productive waters, in partnership with The Billfish Foundation he oversaw a comprehensive socio-economic impact study of the nation’s sportfishing industry.

The two-year effort provided an economic roadmap ultimately leading to a ban on commercial purse-seine fishing in Panama’s territorial waters - the first in Central America.

After five years in there, looking for a new adventure, Trey’s passion for immersive travel led him to purchase an around-the-world airline ticket. He spent a solo year abroad, visiting more than 30 countries, and taking countless photographs along the way - something he has done twice. 

Over the past three years, Trey has had his photographs published in travel magazines, and has been a featured columnist on travel photography for Fox News. His work has also been highlighted on the network’s television programs. 

An advanced open-water diver, Trey plans to obtain his divemaster certification and pilot’s license in the coming years. 


Proficient in Spanish, Trey holds a bachelor’s degree in Marketing, an MBA, and an MS in Financial Planning from Rawls College of Business at Texas Tech University. He is a current candidate for master certification in Business Analytics at Harvard Business School. 

A member of the International Yacht Brokers Association, CCA, Safari Club International, and The Billfish Foundation, in his free time you can find Trey on a boat, the golf course, or watching college football. Follow Trey on Instagram @bohnvoyage_yachts.
