Founder, ManAboutWorld Magazine

Billy Kolber is the founder of ManAboutWorld, the digital-born gay travel magazine. He previously co-founded OUT&ABOUT, the ground-breaking gay travel newsletter and website, which he sold to in 2000. A Yale graduate 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. 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 54 countries, but still lives in Manhattan, where he was born.
