About This Episode

Meet Ethan Abitz — one of the OG Airbnb Instagram Influencers.

Ethan first started using Instagram in high school to promote an apparel line he started. This was when Instagram let you upload a photo and select from just a handful of filters before posting your shot — no stories, reels, etc.

In college, Ethan thought he wanted to work on Wall Street. He was interested in finance and investing and was always good at spotting opportunities. 

But around this time, Ethan began to further explore his creative abilities — especially in the context of photography. And he soon realized that his love of capturing moments and telling the stories behind them outweighed whatever affinity he had for buying low, and selling high. 

Tune in to hear the inspiring story of how Ethan pursued his love for adventure and photography and grew his following to hundreds of thousands across Instagram and TikTok.
