I moved to New York City after college and that set the stage for the rest of my life.
I started my career in Information Security at Goldman Sachs, where I wrote one of the first web logging programs in existence for the firm. (I can say that most of those initial web visits were clearly not work related.) I then moved to an e-commerce startup called InterWorld that was a victim (?) of the dot-com crash. I next moved on to run an ISP called way.com and start Clubplanet.com, the first online nightlife guide and guestlist service for NYC nightclubs. That morphed into multiple other businesses including NewYears.com, Track Entertainment, Wantickets and Cool Junkie.
After finding myself in a bit of a NYC burnout after 14+ years of living and working in the city, I moved to Buenos Aires for “a year” to experience a different culture, learn Spanish and live on my savings. Eight years, a wife and two kids later, I moved to Killington, Vermont. (Pre-Covid! I’m so smart – or just damn lucky.) I’ve been involved in the short-term rental business for years in Killington, managing both my own and others’ properties and using my tech skills to maximize revenue for our owners while also enhancing the guest experience. I’ve recently purchased a Vermont Inn and became an innkeeper as well!
