I am a 27-year old online entrepreneur that has built my work around being able to travel, live, and work the hours I choose.
Born in Philadelphia and currently based in Bogota, I have been moving around in many countries since graduating high school. In 2014 I lived and traveled in Colombia, Indonesia, Philippines, Nepal, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Philadelphia, Singapore, Jamaica, Ethiopia, Mexico, and Brazil! I feel like I am running in a hamster wheel much of the time as I have no real purpose to visit these places, but I continue traveling and revisiting the same places as I still enjoy it.
My work is varied and all over the place. I'm currently in transition after I sold my main business, a career consultancy, in December after eight years of building it. At its peak I had 4 full-time staff in Philadelphia and 2 full-time staff in the Philippines running the show. But i'm so glad its over and I can now focus my attention on what were once side projects-- my online publications from women and men lifestyle websites to freelance writing for The Daily Beast and the bizarre media opportunities that come of it!
One of the ways I like to relax is watching TV. It's an unhealthy habit but some of my favorites are Shameless, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Entourage, Parks & Recreation, 24, Homeland, Community, Nikita, The Office, Fresh Meat, and The Inbetweeners. Maybe that will give you an idea as to my sense of humor and personality?
AirBNB has been such a great experience for me because it combines a few of my favorite things--meeting and hosting people from other cultures and business. I really enjoy hosting others and helping them to get to know the place. If we get along well even better as i'm always excited to show people different neighborhoods, bars and clubs, restaurants, etc. I also enjoy it from a business perspective because I can earn a profit doing so. It's kind of enjoyable for me to make sure that a guest is satisfied and returns to wherever they came with a great experience.
