Inspired by: Charles Kuralt and Henri Cartier-Bresson. Charles was a journalist who captured real life stories "on the road." Henri is probably my favorite photographer who loved to photograph people and really captured candid moments of life.
Personal philosophy: Ride the river. Enjoy the ride. Don't fight the current.
Josh's sardonic wit and timing can be subtle but hilarious.

Networks. In addition to being Producder and Segway rider, he is the Editor of the film. Josh, currently lives in Denver, CO, editing and producing his second film, 10 Yards.
Favorite aspect of America at 10 mph: Around the bend. Each day is different and each winding curve in the road brings an interesting new person or story.
Inspired by: John Wesley Powell, John Muir and those guys from 'Chasing the Void'.
Favorite place in the States before this trip: There is a stretch of road between Kayenta, AZ and Highway 89. At first glance it appears rather desolate but has this amazing subtle allure, especially when the sun hangs low in the sky.
Personal philosophy: Mark Twain once said "A naked man has little or no influence in society." I feel this may need to be tested a bit more.
