Autobiographical Statement from Andrew Kalloch

Andrew Kalloch is the Senior Manager of Global Public Policy for Airbnb, setting policies for the Airbnb community and working with governments to promote the economic opportunity of home sharing. Born and raised in Massachusetts, Andrew is the son of public school teachers who were key contributors to New England style Town Meetings. Kalloch’s early love of–and appreciation for–politics and civic affairs was cemented by a Sunday morning family tradition that centered around bagels, lox, and his father (a local union rep) ranting at pundits and politicians on the morning talk shows.

In law school, Mr. Kalloch represented domestic violence survivors in family court, people with disabilities seeking Social Security benefits, recently laid off workers fighting for unemployment, and incarcerated individuals as they fought for justice behind bars. After law school, Mr. Kalloch litigated civil rights cases for the New York Civil Liberties Union and was a top policy advisor to the New York City Comptroller, where he met a daughter of the Willamette Valley who led him to Oregon.

A graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, Andrew serves on the Program Board of the City Club of Eugene and is the co-chair of the South Willamette Valley Chapter of the Technology Association of Oregon. Andrew was a founding member of the PDX Chapter of Braver Angels, as well as a co-chair of the Portland Committee on Community-Engaged Policing and board member of the City Club of Portland.

He and his spouse, Jenna Adams-Kalloch, reside in Eugene, and are the proud parents of three children: Selma, Leona, and Hamilton.
