At first blush, you might think Brett Orlando is a bottom-line guy. His fierce get-the-job done attitude is as much a part of him as his native New York accent and infectious cheshire cat grin. But spend more than a moment with him and you’ll quickly realize what gets him out of bed in the morning goes well beyond the task at hand.

Leigh Silkunas

Before it was a name-branded thing to do, young Leigh and her parents spent summers in others’ homes around the globe. Worldly travels and otherworldly hospitality galvanized Leigh’s appreciation for both — and, her bravery. She once moved from NYC to San Francisco without knowing a Cali soul. Today, she maps seamless online experiences for our guests, hosts dinner parties, reads feverishly, and still leaps at every opportunity for adventure, big or small.

He can jump from barista to bartender, leader to coach, then back to chef. Outside the kitchen? From ski slopes to campsites and mountain bikes to motorcycles. He also builds his blend by dining out and studying local culture, always open to a dash of something new.

Scott Simms

Growing up in the great wide open can teach you a thing or two. For Scott, the steady fresh air of his Alabama upbringing taught him the importance of slowing down, and appreciating the world around him. The essence of hospitality, he now helps others do the same, whether he’s making our team or our guests feel completely at ease.
