I am currently driving around the U.S. in a great big van, on a year long road trip, looking for cool places to see, people to meet, and stories to tell. I'm a freelance journalist, and I'm writing about the trip on Gizmodo, Wired, Outside Magazine, and a few others. You can read all about it at www.ConnectedStates.com
I'm a nice guy, I have interesting stories, and I don't smell bad. What else do ya need?
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I don't really need couches because my van is basically a fully set-up home on wheels, but I need people to show me around, take me to the cool secret spots. A nice, level driveway I could park in wouldn't hurt either.
I'd love to meet up, explore your town, eat the eats, drink the drinks, and swap stories. Sound good?
All over the united states on various friends', friends' of friends, and total strangers' couches.
Backpacking, camping, science/technology, exploring, surfing, theatre, writing, acting, guitar/music, philosophy, aerial dance (low-flying trapeze), swimming, biking, dancing, laughing, food, conversation, the occasional party, movies. And adventure.
Music, Movies, and Books
Far too many to list. I love movies (especially comedy, but really everything). I like all types of music (especially oldies, and hip-hop). And I just reread Siddhartha, by Herman Hesse and I loved it almost as much as I did 10 years ago.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I got to fly on NASA's zero-gravity plane (aka the Vomit Comet) for a story I was doing. It was one of the best experiences of my entire life.
Teach, Learn, Share
Have fun on your journey, and be good to the people you meet along the way.
I'd like to learn to be a better surfer, and I'd like to learn to meditate. I'm also interested in sustainable living.
What I Can Share with Hosts
