My CouchSurfing Profile

Fenton, Chairman of the Board and one of the co-founders of CouchSurfing
International. CouchSurfing is an international network that
connects travelers with locals in over 230 countries and territories around
the world. I came up with the initial idea for the project back in 1998 after
trips to Egypt and Iceland that had a profound impact on the way I viewed the
world. Several years and a number of inspiring trips later, I founded the
organization along with several friends. Since then CouchSurfing has grown to many
millions of members and has gone through many evolutions, and it’s not
stopping there. Exciting things are always happening in CouchSurfing and I
encourage you to follow our development.
In 2010, I was elected an Ashoka Fellow. More information on Ashoka Fellows here.
I grew up in
Conway, New Hampshire and Brownfield, Maine. After many years of a pretty
nomadic existence, traveling and living in the various CouchSurfing
Collectives, I have settled back in San Francisco where I continue to fulfill
my leadership role at CouchSurfing and work on new projects that inspire me. If you would would like to arrange an
interview or meeting please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
