Our Story:

The Founder

 HouseSurfing was founded by a young entrepreneur in Los Angeles who was raised around the world in over 16 countries with a natural curiosity for cultures and commonalities. Before moving to California and starting HouseSurfing at the age of 20 with a tax return from the lucrative job he quit*. he graduated high school at 13 and had a Bachelor’s in Computer Science and 2 Master’s degrees in Business and Finance before he turned 20, along with a wealth of experience living in Europe, Asia, North Africa, South America and the Unites States.

(*He took the cash and put some of it in the business and with the rest bought a motorcycle at $1300 below its value, then traded the motorcycle for a classic red convertible sports car and $500 cash and sold the sports car for a $4500 profit and invested $3800 into initial development and with the left over bought another motorcycle for $1800 below it’s offered price, starting the business while riding in style.)
