Early Life & Biography
Joe Gebbia was born on 21st August in 1981 in Atlanta, Georgia. He is the son of Joe Gebbia and his wife Eileen and has a sister known as Kimberly. Joe has been a bit generous with information about his past, unlike many celebrities who only talk about their present and career life. For that reason, he has provided us not only information about his family but also about the school he attended and stuff like that.
Joe schooled at Brookwood High School, which is located in Snellville, Gwinnett County, Georgia. After graduating from high school, he was then enrolled in the Rhode Island School of Design, which is also abbreviated as (RISD). RISD is located in Providence, Rhode Island. Joe knew what he wanted in life, and hence, he went through the whole course, and in 2005, he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in the course he had selected, which was Graphic Design and Industrial Design.
Apart from the Graphic Design and Industrial Design course he took, Joe didn’t complete his creative pursuits and studies at that. He went ahead and enrolled at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Brown University, where he studied business coursework.
Although Joe is a very open-minded person and tries to keep much of his private life open to the public, there is no information about his romantic relationship. There were rumors that he is married to his business partner Brian Chesky, but this can only be treated as mere rumors as that is exactly what it is. This is because Brian Chesky is only a business partner, and he is reported to be in a romantic relationship with a lady known as Elisa Patel.
Age, Height, and Weight
Being born on 21st August 1981, Joe Gebbia is 40 years old as of 18th September 2021. His height is 1.71 m tall, and his weight is 72 kg.
Joe Gebbia did not only attain a degree at RISD, but he also got a friend who later became his business partner. Brian Chesky was Joe Gebbia’s roommate, and he later became a co-founder of Airbnb. After Joe Gebbia cleared from RISD, he moved to San Francisco, where he overstayed at a friend’s house for many months. He was, however, lucky to be employed by Chronicle Books in San Francisco while his friend Brian moved to Los Angeles.
After some time, he decided to try out his luck in business, but he needed to have a business partner. Therefore, he convinced his friend Brian Chesky to move in with him in San Francisco in 2007. The duo was risk-takers, and they quit their jobs to concentrate on business. Unfortunately, after quitting their jobs, their landlord decided to raise their rent, which led them to be desperately in need of money.
As luck would have it, that same time, there was a conference of Industrial Design Society of America that was set to be held in San Francisco. This meant that all the hotels would be booked, and there would still not be enough. Therefore, they planned to rent out airbeds in their apartment to those who were coming to attend the conference.
They created a website called “Airbed & Breakfast” to market their idea. This marked the beginning of Airbnb. In February 2008, they added Nathan Blecharczyk, who was also Gebbia’s roommate and a graduate at Harvard University and a technical architect as a third co-founder.
