The only classes I went to in high school were Jazz band, music theory, and chess club. If I had graduated I would have been 2nd from the bottom of my class. Something about being told to be somewhere at 7:40 (AM) everyday seemed so ridiculous. College was cool though - I have a B.A. in Political Science.
I started a company called PicPhix (sounds like Pic Fix). We created a(website hidden)iPhone app that makes it impossible to take a bad picture. How you ask?
See if you can figure it out. ;)

Put that project on hold and we're now in development on an app to solve a very big problem for Airbnb and make Airbnb hosts lot more money. :) If you're an Airbnb host, ping me to be one of the first to know when we open for testing. This app will make your life so much easier.
Wr raised money to start start a photo editing company but became airbnb enthusiasts accidentally. We saw a very big opportunity to solve a very big problem for the airbnb community. We use whatever excess cash we make from our bookings to cover development costs.
In terms of guests - don't really care too much. Special preference to artists, musicians, or entrepreneurs. The more verified you are the better - have something about yourself in your profile - connect it to some of your social networks. Just nice to know that people staying at your place are connected and have a story. ...and if you think you can drink at a steady enough pace, you're welcome to join us for dinner or drinks (where ever we happen to be).
