Welcome to Alexandria, your (hopefully) future home!

We're a coliving house, so if you enjoy living with positive, productive people, this place is for you.

No community involvement is required, but everyone who lives here is welcome to our dinners, hikes, movie nights, trips to San Francisco, intelligently run and under control parties, discussions, speaker nights, and friendship.

Great for founders, travelers, students, and professionals recently out of college. LGBT friendly :-)

The space

We're a coliving house of 14 people who are dedicated to personal growth, ambitious projects to change the world, and a Burning Man-esque spirit of exploration and mutual support. We to make fun things happen and have many house events and outings each month.

Topics of interest include among many, meditation, leadership, spirituality, shamanism, aerospace, AI and machine learning, molecular gastronomy, mobile app development, hardware hackathons, themed parties, and urban farming. At Alexandria House we are opening our doors to the world and inviting you into our shared community.

Alexandria is a 15-20 minute bike ride to Downtown Palo Alto and the Caltrain station, which you can use to get to SF.

We have multiple private rooms and shared rooms, based on your budget. The shared spaces are furnished bedrooms with housemates prescreened for a good culture fit and pleasant experience; we do our best to ensure everyone cares about cleanliness and quiet during the night.

We have delightful social events happening at our place every week. Mondays we play host to Stanford Salon - an intellectual, emotional and experiential gathering - with about 50+ attendees and mind blowing talks.

On Wednesdays, we have our Fire Night - where we roast marshmallows around our chimney fire with 30+ people from the neighborhood.

On weekends we host dinner parties and home hackathons.

The house comes equipped with
-high speed internet and coworking space,
-amenities such as full kitchen, hot tub, laundry facilities and maid service.
-Comfy lounge space both inside and out.
-lush backyard with vegetable garden, and fireplace.

Note that the default space is our Lounge, a lovely converted garage area. It's a casual, shared space. See you soon!

Interaction with guests

We'll do our best to make sure a housemate is present during your stay. Some of us work from home, and if you want to be sure to meet someone here, we can arrange that via messaging. Guaranteed someone will be present if you'd like to arrive between 10am-10pm and give at least 24 hours notice.

Other things to note

We are constantly improving accommodations based on guest feedback, and re-invest a portion of every stay into making Alexandria better. If at any time you have a special request - especially if you'd like to stay here again - we'll take it to heart!

Housemate quotes on top; founder bio in the middle :-)
House:
Home to hackers, hustlers, teachers, and travelers dedicated to building a better world, together.

"This home is like an embassy for culture, welcoming ambassadors of worldly wisdoms and ingenious strategies for improvement of self, business, and world. Plus the parties are pretty good."
-Michael G

"Alexandria was more than a house - it was a family, in every sense of the word. We ate together, laughed together, learned together, supported one another, and had a blast."
-Elizabeth S

Michelle M:
"The family at Alexandria that will support your riskiest adventures emotionally, creatively, intellectually, and every other meaningful way without judgement"

Max S:
"With lambda calculus discussions over breakfast, weekly Salons,
late night hot tub chats, homemade ice cream and epic shindigs. the house has grown to be a cultural renaissance
in sleepy Palo Alto."

Me (House founder):
In over 10 years of entrepreneurship, I've been convinced that self-mastery is a key determinant of our biggest successes and failures.

I mentor startups to help them refine their visions, business models and monetization strategy. This often leads to sales coaching, which I really enjoy and have studied extensively.

I’m obsessed with scalable approaches to dramatically enhance cognition, productivity and engagement. The prototype name for my current company was called "Engineered Self Optimization," because I think it's ridiculously unfortunate for anyone not to be their best. We constantly upgrade our technology; why not make sure our life and biology is in the absolute best state possible?

When there's time, I've been a painter, improv joke teller, transhumanist, and writer, and started zen meditation at age 13.

I started managing people at 14 and launched my first company at 19. I love studying leadership, strategy, sales, and marketing, and love building exceptional teams. Thanks to passionate coworkers, my companies have grossed $5M+, created several hundred jobs and dozens of internships.

I study patterns in society that will affect a product’s success, and try to predict where the world is heading 5, 10 and 20 years from now. AI, synthetic biology, neural interfaces, robotics, security and data science are among the most important exponential technologies we can study.

As this continues, our ability to adapt, learn and evolve will affect our success potentially more than any other factor. I wish, as kids, we were taught self-actualization, logic, heuristics, biases, rationalism, argumentation and compassion. The world would be such a better place if more people were as proficient with internal tools (psychology) as they are with external tools (technology).

I only work with people who are authentic, genuine, mindful, and have high integrity.

I've built for several life-optimization tools in the links below.

If you'd like to collaborate and make these into well designed products, let me know!
