In the Fall of 2015, Menfee will host Travel Channel’s new series, Hello Goodbye, where some of life’s most precious moments are captured as regular, everyday people arrive and depart from an airport terminal. The series highlights heart-warming – and sometimes heart-wrenching – stories of love, sorrow, family and friendship from travelers of all cultures and walks of life. These stories reveal the raw emotions and real moments of the hellos and goodbyes that take place every minute at airports across the world.

He currently serves on the school’s Board of Trustees, and dedicates as much time as possible to community work. He currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife.
