Fargo Balliett

Me

I am driven by a profound love for people and culture, which is why I have pursued my lifelong passion for travel and hospitality. I was born in Manila, raised in Hong Kong, and am fortunate to have called 7 cities across Southeast Asia and the United States my home. No matter where I go, I find that hospitality transcends cultural and geographic boundaries.     

Work

I have extensive experience in the travel and hospitality industry in all aspects of customer service, operations, real estate finance, and events. I am a former tech startup founder who managed diverse teams to build a community-based marketplace. Moreover, I have assisted in the growth of an energy NGO (Liter of Light) to increase the organization’s impact in communities throughout North America, South America, and Southeast Asia. My work is centered around a love for travel and giving everyone the ability to experience the world.   

Dreams

I am passionate about technology and innovation both in and out of the travel/hospitality industry. I want to define and create the ultimate customer experience. Ultimately, I hope to focus my work on driving positive social and environmental change.
