To share and create stories.
Hello, my name is Joseph Aceves. I am a recent graduate of California State University of Long Beach where I studied production of film and television. To live and travel about is something I have wanted to do my entire life. Now that I finished college I have a small amount of time where it would be possible for me to do so.
I have a passion to travel. I love to experience cultures and gather stories to share. I often think about the different types of people I might meet on my trip. During my studies I was fortunate enough to meet a few international students. They were great and only enhanced my already fostering passion to travel.
I'm active and enjoy any group exercise. I love art and would be enthralled with any artistic activities. I look forward to mingling with whichever community I end up living near. I love to talk to people and share stories. It's always interesting to listen to what a person has to say.
If Iâm fortunate enough to have you as a host person/family I assure you I will be respectful and open minded to the entire experience. Thank you for taking the time to read about me!
If I had to stick or condense myself to three off the top of my head: (In no particular order)
A) Being good is a reward within itself.
B) We're all in this together.
C) Empathy can save you a lot of energy.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm new. If couch surfing is as good as an experience as I've heard I'll most likely open up my place near LA for CS.
I have none. I've heard it's a must try for travelers, so I'm here!

Music, Movies, and Books
My mind is racing. No matter what I put in here I have this gut feeling I'll force myself back on to edit and re-edit my list. I love comedies, dramas, and music that speaks to me. I know that's generic, but there's so many good films, and timeless music, and inspiring books that I can't bring myself to settle on anything. I'm always up for film, music, and book suggestions. I love them.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've been fortunate enough to travel to Germany, Hungary, Croatia, Switzerland, England, Spain, and Italy in the last month and a half. I did a job for a music video this summer, a job for an indie feature two summer ago, and a job for a production company one summer ago. Film school was, to me, amazing. I've been to an outdoor wedding in Switzerland during a thunderstorm. It was amazing.
Teach, Learn, Share
Film school taught me a bunch of cool, hopefully not useless, factoids on film. I'm Mexican/Chinese. Literally half Mexican and Chinese. I was born and raised in California, but ethnically considered Chexican (made-up word.)
