Airbnb just announced it expects to go public in 2020. Meet CEO Brian Chesky, who cofounded the company in 2008 to help pay his San Francisco apartment’s rent and is now worth $4.2 billion.

Airbnb expects to become a publicly traded company sometime in 2020, the company announced Thursday.

Brian Chesky, the 37-year-old cofounder and CEO of Airbnb, is worth an estimated $4.2 billion, according to Forbes.

Despite his wealth, the tech billionaire lives a relatively modest lifestyle. In 2016, Chesky (along with Airbnb's other two cofounders, Joe Gebbia and Nathan Blecharczyk, and Blecharczyk's wife) pledged to give at least half his fortune to charity over the course of his lifetime.

Chesky previously said in interviews that he has rented out his own San Francisco apartment on Airbnb, does weekly yoga with his girlfriend (who he met on Tinder), and has attended the famously wild Burning Man arts event in the Nevada desert.

Here's what Chesky's life is really like.
