Thank you for coming over!
My name is Boris. I'm an entrepreneur and an avid traveler. Originally from Lithuania, but currently living in Boston (and loving it!).
I love to travel and explore, which is why Airbnb is such a dear concept to me. Over the past few years, I've had an opportunity to travel to some really amazing places and have done things like drive from South Africa to London in a 1980 Land Rover, cycle through New Zealand, live and work in India, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. As much as opportunity allows, I try to build travel into my lifestyle.
My work generally focuses on startups and the alternative transportation sector. Most recently, I've been a part of the first person-to-person carsharing startup that launched in the United States. Now, I'm working on an electric bicycle startup to make cycling easier for more people.
The latest adventure that I was a part of occurred in the Spring of 2012 - it was a 4,000 mile Trans-American Electric Bike Tour to promote electric transportation throughout the country. My partner and I spent 75 days cycling from New York City to San Francisco and it was a blast. Best of all, we used Airbnb for a large portion of our accommodations and it was probably one of the main things that really made the trip.
Anyhoo, whatever brings you to New York, I hope to have a chance to make your stay here pleasant, homey and enjoyable. Please feel free to get in touch if you're looking for a place to stay!
