About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finding love, inner-peace, harmony, and happiness

ABOUT ME

I've done everything right, going to school and getting degrees and good jobs.. and I've traveled a ton.. but something is still missing. The corporate world is not for me. I value my independence and independent thought too much. So I am going to pursue the road less traveled, backpack all over the world, and try to make a living as a writer/adventurer/filmmaker/speaker/teacher, volunteer as much as possible, and understand what happiness really is. I hope to meet you along the way! My website is http://www.HappinessPlunge.com

PHILOSOPHY

The golden rule Leave the earth giving it more than it gave you Be the change you wish to see in the world Take the path less traveled - the happy one!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Right now I'm surfing quite a bit, but when I get my own place I'll be a host!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've surfed a lot, attended meetings in many cities, been active in groups.. lots of experiences and I'll need a lifetime to repay all that couchsurfing has blessed me with!

Interests

Travel, languages, sports, books, movies, exercise, politics, business, investing, energy, social movements, sustainability, CSR, meditation, yoga, spirituality

Music, Movies & Books

I like lots of movies, but I think now I prefer inspirational stories more than rampant violence or cheesy romantic commedies.

The book The Power of Now changed my life for the better, and I share it here so maybe it can help change yours for the better as well!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Participated in the world's biggest food fight Hot air balloon over Cappadocia Safari in Southern Africa Lived a year of my life on the ocean Dropped out of the corporate world to be a happy nomad Sunrise at Angkor Wat Machu Pichu Meditated with snakes and dead people in Thailand Volunteered all over the world Diwali and Holi in India Stayed at an Indian ashram Lived with families in villages too remote for Google Maps Met a Noble Prize winner Ringing in the new year on 5 different continents 2+ years of continuous travel (and still going!!)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to be happy (or happier)! :)

I can also teach stuff about the oil industry, renewable energy, English, business, math, science :) I have traveled a lot, so I could probably help with travel planning.
