Join Couchsurfing to see Lindsay’s full profile. It’s free!
I am a man who is going on a motorcycle road trip through the U.S. I'm beginning in Toronto, Canada and making my way down to New Orleans by way of Pittsburg, Louisville KY, Nashville, Birmingham, Montgomery, Selma, and then New Orleans for some great times and good food. (at least that's what I plan to do) From there on I'm gonna go by ear.
I'm an actor who has appeared numerous times in movies and video games. Maybe you've seen me in film or on TV or shot me a game. I'll let you Google me if you care to know which ones. My full name is Lindsay Owen Pierre.
I'm interested in seeing the beautiful parts of all the places I go so if you have any suggestions on beautiful rides, national parks, or classic dining in your city, I would love to hear about them.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I travel on a motorcycle and I feel like this way of finding accommodation while I'm on the road more chill. I've hitchhiked across Canada and ridden through Mexico on a motorcycle and one thing I loved was meeting people. I love hostels, but my friend told me that this was cool and that you met great people so I thought I'd give it a try.
Art, life, people, the Earth. Y'know, the important stuff. I love a good BBQ restaurant, or country road. A waterfall or local live music. I want to live life taking in all the kinds of life in it. At home, at work ,I can sometimes find myself in a habitual rut, so I tend to escape to Spain for a month or (when I was younger) hitchhike across the country to plant trees for a summer. I think that seeing panoramic beauty in the world widens my view of things and makes me feel both large and small in perspective. Being an actor, humility is something I have to refill so my confidence doesn't lead to hubris.

Music, Movies, and Books
I'm a musician; a bassist among other things so my music loves tend to revolve around bassist heroes. Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Sly and the Family Stone, Gap Band. I was in a funk band for a while so I love the funk.I also get down to Nina Simone (I named my bike after her), Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, Nat King Cole. Bruno Mars, Lenny Kravitz, Gnarls Barkley or KOS are my more modern loves.
I'm a fan of Japanese Manga and film. Like a kid, I have Seven Samurai posters in my room as well as The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, as well as Easy Rider (this trip is trying to get the vibe from that movie).
My favourite books are mostly sic-fi classics like The Foundation series by Asimov, or Larry Niven's Ringworld. I loved the Dune series. I also like 1984, A Brave New World. Lately I've been reading autobiographies by Malcom X, Sidney Poitier, and James Brown.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've planted about 40,000 trees, I've jumped off of a cliff, I've jumped out of a plane, I've done Karaoke with an Oscar nominated actor.
These are things I'm proud of.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'll let us share more if we meet and then we can teach each other something. I can only show you so much of my heart on a profile page.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Good stories, good vibes and a promise of receiving them if they're in my town. I have experienced so much on the kindness of others and I never take generosity for granted.
I like to think I can make anyone laugh. I can cook a good meal. I can also offer the experience you have when you meet someone who is living their life freely, even if it is only for a moment. I find that I am never as good a person as the man I am when I am travelling. I'm sure you can understand. It truly is a good feeling and I like to think that I bring those good vibes into the hearts of the people I meet when I travel, as well as get it from them.
