Billy Kolber graduated from Yale with a B.S. in biology. 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. 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. Today, he publishes ManAboutWorld, one of the first magazines developed specifically for mobile devices.

 

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 56 countries, but still lives in Manhattan, where he was born. Billy serves as Vice President on the board of yale.NYC, and is the creator and chair of Foodtober, a month of food-related events and activities benefitting the Yale Sustainable Food Project and local NYC food non-profits.
