About Me

Going into my second year on the Podcast World Tour.

Currently touring Texas, including Austin, Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio!

Born in Miami, raised in Central Florida, High School in Virginia Beach, College at Florida State and Fresno State University then moved back to the east coast - Atlanta GA where I owned a franchise and later began my podcasting career. And that's my life story in 17 seconds LOL

I began my broadcasting career in California as a radio DJ then built an entertainment company whose staff and crew entertained over 100,000 people.

I got the radio bug early and thought how great it would be to get back into radio interviewing thought leaders which led to becoming the Founder and Chief Visionary Officer of an Atlanta based Business Podcast Network.

Within the first 18 months the network generated over 750,000 downloads which evolved into GlobalPodcastStudios.com offering a full range of podcasting services i.e. professional audio engineers, editing, jingle production, and more!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I began traveling on the Podcast World Tour and loved it! Now I'm traveling the United States as a digital nomad as the founder of an online community which connects podcast hosts with podcast guests - kinda like couchsurfing but for podcasters and guests. www.PodcastersDirectory.com

I'm working on relaunching the Podcast World Tour which was created as part of our social enterprise initiative where as I visit cities I interview people doing good in their community. One of the tour goals is an awareness campaign to help tell the story of the nonprofit we 'adopted' that works with kids who are born deaf to restore their hearing to 100% eliminating the need to rely on lip reading or sign language!

I have most of my accommodations covered along my journey but when I heard about couchsurfing I thought it seemed like a cool way to meet some interesting people, visit new places and enjoy compelling conversations while living like a local.

Cheers,
Rich

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: I love helping people to start their own podcast and teach them how to be a podcast guest and what amazing doors are opened through the medium of podcasting and podcast guesting!

Learn: Currently learning Spanish in advance of traveling to Spain. Also really enjoy meeting new friends and hearing their stories knowing that we all have much more in common than we think! Also drawn to new cultures, cuisines and customs.

Share: I should warn you, I'm a podcaster so I like to talk however, I need to listen more. LOL Having said that i'm always up for sharing jokes, travel adventure stories or you pick the topic and beverage and turn off our cell phones and see where the conversation goes!
