About David Easum
I'm probably not your average Vermont vacation home landlord. I consider myself to be from New York City, but I have lived and worked all over the world - primarily with a focus on telecommunications in Africa. Though I may have only played a small part, I can lay claim to having contributed over my 15 years in the mobile industry to providing mobile telephone services to more than 300 million people on the continent. Today that number has swelled to nearly a billion! When I first started, there were fewer telephones in the whole of Africa than in Manhattan - mobile or otherwise! Still on the same development crusade, but I'm now focused on delivering renewable energy to village households. I am based in Bujumbura after having lived the previous twenty years in Holland, Congo (DRC), Spain, Egypt, Rwanda and Nigeria.
David Easum purchased this house in 1986
Why David Easum chose Pittsfield
I have always been a skier. I started going up to Killington from Manhattan in the early eighties, renting and organizing share houses to be able to afford the season's ski pass and the gas in my old Pontiac. On occasion I would bring my parents along and they decided they liked the area - especially in the fall and summer. Hence the decision to buy a house there - on condition that I help defray the costs by running it as a share house in the winter. It was great fun for many years but when I moved overseas again it was impractical to run as before. So I started renting it by the season, and now for short-term vacation renters as well. I now own the house and this website has been a real benefit to keeping the place going. Though the rent never really manages to pay all the bills, I get good reviews and they encourage me to invest in making the house more and more comfortable every year. When I'm lucky, I can occasionally squeeze in between the bookings and enjoy the place myself for a few days!
