Billy Kolber
Founder


Billy Kolber graduated from Yale with a B.S. in biology. In his senior year, he was elected Business Manager of the Whiffenpoofs, and organized their traditional round-the-world tour.  Upon his return, he started a career in travel, managing the American Express travel agency in New Haven, Connecticut and serving on the Pan American World Airlines Travel Agency Advisory Board.  He left American Express to co-found OUT&ABOUT, the ground-breaking gay travel newsletter and website, which he sold to PlanetOut.com in 2000. A true renaissance man and entrepreneur, he has worked as a commercial photographer, chocolatier, top-selling Avon Representative, author and guest experience consultant. He is a recreational baker, and the only person to have twice won the Water Island Pie Contest (with his Banana Cream Pie).  Billy has visited 48 countries, but still lives in Manhattan, where he was born.
