Rick Rottman has had a complex career ranging from work in the aerospace industry to gold exploration in Russia. Speaking Russian, German, and Spanish, he has long been interested in world history and travel. It’s no surprise he’s fascinated by Humboldt’s extraordinary life (1769-1859). In the 19th century, Humboldt used his personal fortune to travel the world on scientific expeditions. He helped establish what we think of today as the “New Geography.”
