About Me


Getting back into the routine of things.


LAST UPDATE: August 19, 2010

Hi. My name is Joe. Although I'm in my 30's now, I still feel like I'm in my 20's. I'm enjoying life and seeing what all this world has to offer. I got bit by the travel bug my senior year in college when I went to Europe for a study abroad program. Ever since, travel has been a big part of my life.

I'm originally from Texas. I attended a university nearby my hometown where I earned a business degree in finance. Later in life, I lived in Orlando, FL for a year where I attended an entertainment school and earned a degree in live productions.

Now that I've earned two degrees, I've been traveling cross-country working as a freelance production technician for live concerts, sporting events, and other shows. I work behind-the-scenes setting up audio, video, and lighting. I've been in New Mexico, Arizona, and California so far. Now I'm back in New Mexico, and traveling when I can.

I also maintain my own travel blog. It records all of my trips and I also try to make it a resource of useful information to the fellow traveler. Feel free to check it out: http://joeflanagan.wordpress.com

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


So far, I've only surfed other peoples couches. But it's been great, all my hosts have been very hospitable. I would love to return the favor whenever I can. Even if I'm not able to provide a couch, maybe I can show you around the city or meet for coffee or dinner or something.


I began couchsurfing in early 2008. It's been awesome so far. I feel this is another avenue of making some long-time friends. I feel like I'm part of the community where I'm staying, instead of a tourist or an outsider.


Traveling, of course!! Ha Ha!!

I like being outdoors, hiking and backpacking, the beach, and just seeing new places. I like going to the movies and hanging out with friends and just having a good time.

Other things I like to do but don't really do that often... horseback riding, and playing tennis.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I went skydiving in Texas. I traveled Europe for the first time. Got to work at the 2008 SuperBowl in Arizona. I saw the Grand Canyon. And I went gliding over the northshore of Oahu.

(I can't limit this to just "one" amazing thing. I plan to add more in the future.)

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a numbers guy. Algebra was my favorite subject in high school. :-) I have a degree in finance, and enjoy sharing my personal knowledge about money management and budgeting.
