Makomi is the short-term rental manager for vacationers, business travelers, and investors. Renting your home can be difficult and time-consuming. You have more important...more and exciting things to do. We save you time while making you money so you can focus on the adventure ahead.
My passion lies in building service based companies...ones that make other people's lives easier, better, and more efficient. My companies have spanned across several industries including ad tech, media, food and restaurant service, sports/entertainment and hospitality.
I sold my position in my 1st business, Eatblue (which I founded in 2005), in 2009 at the age of 22.
My next entrepreneurial endeavor, Gift Connect, has worked with some of the biggest brands (ex: Under Armour, Zappos, Svedka, Papa John's, et al) and media agencies in the world, has closed over $7M in funding through Series B financing, and holds gifting inventory of more than $100M.
Since that time, my focus has been on the short-term property rental economy. I left my post as Gift Connect's Director of Operations in 2015 to pursue this endeavor and passion. After launching MetroButler in NYC and running it for over three years, we have taken our learnings, team, and operational knowhow to bring our new company MAKOMI to the world.
