Josh BenjaminCreate Your Badge

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am good for a nice talk at a cafe, and can provide information or a tour of San Francisco. I love to help and answer questions!


I've made some fantastic friends through surfing and group events, it humbles me. The result of using CS is I just want to travel and couchsurf more, in the spirit of reconnecting with those people and making more amazing connections


I thrive on new friends. I'm also into running and cycling -- great ways to learn a new city! I'm into behavioral and social science and have lately been really into talking about (dis)Connectedness and technology+sustainability.

I'm into interactive art, new music, yoga, martial arts, food (cooking and eating), and red wines.

Music, Movies, and Books

Enter the Void -- intense, amazing film! Maybe too intense or cinematic for you...ask me about it
and Connected An Autobiography about Love, Death, & Technology that will make you think

Some favorite musicians: The Temper Trap, The Naked and Famous, Gold Motel, Broken Bells, Adele, LCD Soundsystem, Ray Charles, Justice, Daft Punk, Radiohead, The Beatles, RJD2
