Meet The LANDED Family

Born an adventure seeker, Erynn has explored many parts of the world out of desire to understand and connect with people of all cultures. Before she and John started LANDED in 2006, Erynn was the CEO and President of an international humanitarian organization focusing on South America where she quickly grew to love the people and the landscape. Erynn has a passion for writing and shares some of their family’s adventures at Tropic of Candycorn. She can often be found leading gelato missions on her 1974 BMW R75/6 with a sidecar full of four happy daughters.

Erynn Montgomery

Co-founder / Travel Designer

John Montgomery was born traveling; he’s the son of two U.S. Air Force officers, and his childhood spanned the USA and Far East. When he and Erynn married, they began dog-earing their passports together. Even after the arrival of their fourth daughter, the journeys continue. When John needs a break from the feminine energy of the family home, he escapes lobo solitario to locations remote, undiscovered, and extreme. Prior to co-founding LANDED, John financed hotels and other commercial real estate for more than 15 years. These days, he smiles a lot.
