Why did you start your company?
I’m from South Carolina. I went to college for engineering and got a job in engineering. But, I didn’t want to do that. So, I wrote down on a piece of paper what I wanted to do and what I thought was valuable in life: things like family and travel and freedom. Then, I went and got a job that fit that spectrum better. I moved to California and worked as a tour guide. I traveled all around North America showing people around all the coolest spots. After doing that for five or six years, I realized I could do it better. I moved to San Francisco, started the company, and haven’t looked back since.
