Brin received degrees in computer science from the University of Maryland. He is a graduate student from Stanford University. Brin is now President of Alphabet Inc, parent company of Google. Brin drives a Tesla car and is sometimes seen using public transport.
The Google story begins in 1995 at Stanford University. Larry Page was considering Stanford for grad school. Brin, a student there, was assigned to show him around.
By some accounts, they disagreed about nearly everything during that first meeting. But by the following year they struck a partnership.
Working from their dorm rooms, they built a search engine. The engine used links to determine the importance of individual pages on the World Wide Web. They called this search engine Backrub. Soon after, Backrub was renamed Google.
The name was a play on the mathematical expression for the number 1 followed by 100 zeros. This aptly reflected Larry and Sergey's mission “to organize the world’s information. And to make it universally accessible and useful’
Brin is now CEO of Google's parent company Alphabet Inc. Alphabet’s group companies include Google and Capital G (Google’s venture capital fund). It also includes Google Fiber, providing broadband Internet. And it includes Google X, a research and development company.
In 2006 Google acquired Youtube.
His net worth is estimated at US$ 54 billion. For 8 years he was married to Anne Wojcicki. They have 2 children. A son named Benji Wojini and a daughter named Chloe Wojin. Brin is a frequent visitor of the Burning Man festival.
The computer scientist owns a large house in California, near San Fransisco. He also owns a large mansion in New Jersey, near New York. Further he has a residence in Palo Alto. The New Jersey mansion was purchased in 2015 for US$ 49 million.
The house has 42 rooms, 12 bathrooms, a home theater and a spa/fitness center. There is an indoor basketball and a 4,000 bottle wine cellar. There is an elevator and staff quarters. And a motor court with garaging for 11 cars.
Google owns its private airport near San Jose. It has cost near to US$ 100 million. The airport has several hangars and a executive lounge.
We are not sure if he owns another jet. We do know that Google executives use a jet owned by Google Chairman Eric Schmidt. He is owner of the yacht Oasis.
And there are reports that Brin, Page and Schmidt have a total of 8 private jets. And according to some older sources they each own a Gulfstream G550. They could have upgraded to a G650 in the mean time.
