It's been a decade of life on the road, I confess to be a recovering backpacker/digital nomad/vagabonding yogi. I don't hide from these parts of me, and I'm still all of these things, but in order to accomplish my artistic (and professional) goals it's now time to settle down somewhere and make some roots (to bear some fruits).
Professionally, I am a traveling social entrepreneur and filmmaker. When I'm not Couchsurfing (which is more and more these days), I exchange my videography services to charities, low budget organizations, and individuals with causes--so we can broadcast them to the world. My years of traveling has evolved into a project to digitize a network of communities around the world, initiating children's cooperative creativity workshops along the way. Changing the world starts with the youth.
Artistically, I've just released my first film (a travelogue in Nepal), self-published my first book of travel memoirs (living in Bangkok), and am writing my first album (new age country music). I play lots of guitar, accordion, and piano.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Life is the etching away of culture's monochromatic paint job to unveil the colorful masterpiece of who we truly are: always expanding, blemishes and all. I'll see it in you and you'll see it in me. I love meeting new people, I thrive off human connection in all forms.
Very interested in creating a platform to use travelers as a means of networking the world's communities in order to eradicate fear and promote collaboration amongst all peoples. The blockchain is the answer to this and it is my life's mission to bring this into existence. http://www.PerceptionTravel.tv

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I was in a jam session in Nepal with a camera rolling when the 2015 earthquake hit. It turned into a film about the grassroots relief efforts--a global community coming together to support one another--and long story short it spawned my "purpose of life" thing.
Teach, Learn, Share
