Jeff is a self-described computer geek who developed and sold his first video game at the age of 13. In college, while planning a backpacking trip through Europe on a student's budget, he and a buddy got a crash course in the intricacies of the airline business, and later decided to use their know-how to help others save money on air fares. What was first known as 1-800-Cheap-Air was founded out of a University of Michigan dorm room in 1989. When the company took off, Jeff ditched his law school plans for a far more exciting journey. As the internet revolutionized the travel industry, Jeff used his passion for software development to create a proprietary air fare shopping engine designed to give trip planners the best user experience on the planet. CheapAir.com was born, and soon after AmTrav which together serve almost 400,000 travelers annually.
A rabid Dodger fan, Jeff grew up in Los Angeles and still lives there with his wife, two young children, and Golden Retriever.
