What Else To Know

Your Business's Motto?:

Create as much transparency for renters as possible

One food and drink on earth, what would you choose?:

Oh, that’s tough. Is it cheating if I say my wife’s cooking and a cold beer?

What literature is on your bed stand?:

My Dad is writing a book on our family history and I’ve been reading it as he’s going along. Beyond the appreciation of getting to know my family roots better, it’s also helped give me perspective that my problems aren’t that serious. The challenges my grandfather faced at my age as a Jewish Hungarian citizen dwarfs anything I worry about.
