Join Couchsurfing to see Joshua’s full profile.
Meet new people who enjoy sharing their experiences from all over the world!
I am Josh. I am a Gringo. I am also a Backpacker.
I grew up on a farm in Pennsylvania, USA, having taken my first trip abroad when I was 16 with my 10th grade English class to Ireland. Since then I was diagnosed with the “travel bug” and have gone off to explore the World.
After high school, I became the first generation in my family to graduate from college. Having lived and worked in NYC upon graduation for almost 3 years, I parted ways with my life in Corporate America and took off to explore the World. My adventure took me on a backpacking trip to Southeast Asia where over the course of 6 months, I visited 11 countries. 20 flights, and more bus, boat, and train rides than I can remember.
As of November 2015, I have now settled in my new home on the West Coast in San Francisco, CA, where I'm in the process of starting my own juice company. In my free time, I love to explore this amazing city full of interesting people and take off on weekend trips to explore the Redwoods, Tahoe, and other natural places of California.
I am looking to meet new people who enjoy sharing their experiences from all over the world. Let me know if you are interested.
