About Me


Figure out my future


Hi, I'm Scott. I'm a friendly, laid back kind of guy who is generally happy to go with the flow. I enjoy strong drinks and tall tales and, like many people on CS, I'm slightly obsessed with travel.

Also, I was quoted in an article about couchsurfing in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Click here to read it.


I live to fill my life with amazing experiences so that I may someday retire on the richness of my memories.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I've hosted several times, surfed all over America, once in Peru and twice in Europe, and try to get to the meetings in Philadelphia when I can.


Top ten interests, in no particular order:

1. Travel 2. Beer 3. Theater (both acting in and seeing shows) 4. Writing 5. Photography 6. Marathons 7. Nudism 8. Movies 9. The Great Outdoors (hiking, camping, etc.) 10. Vigilante Justice

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: I love movies and watch a lot of them. Top 5 films? Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Blues Brothers, Wet Hot American Summer, Goodbye Lenin, and The Big Lebowski.

Music: All kinds of stuff. A lot of classic rock, with a little bit of top 40, alt country and indie thrown into the mix.

Books: I read a lot of travel literature. Anthologies and travelogues alike. I love anything by Bill Bryson. I also like mid 20th century literature, like Slaughterhouse Five, Lolita, The Catcher in the Rye, to name a few.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Life is amazing. Let's start with three amazing things:

Summer 2007 = The Great American Roadtrip. Coast to coast, border to border. 10,000 miles. 24 states. All solo. If you'd like to read about it, head over to http://mytravelswithblackbetty.blogspot.com.

Summer 2008 = Mongol Rally. England to Mongolia in a 1991 Nissan Micra bought for $340 on Ebay. All for charity. Read about our adventure on http://mongolrally.theadventurists.com/onesmallcar.

Fall 2010: ran the Philadelphia Marathon and qualified for Boston. Watch my training video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3aW1CGgt0Q

Teach, Learn, Share

I bought a chess board in Poland 12 years ago and have been trying to improve ever since. Anyone who can teach me how to become a better player would be much appreciated!

I can teach you some wicked cool camp games.

I'm all about sharing travel stories.
