Daniel Altman Wants To Do You a Favor

Daniel is leaving for an epic summer road trip next week and he has no idea where he’s going yet because it’s not up to him. It’s up to the internet. Daniel’s launching a travel vlog on Monday with a local filmmaker (and personal friend of mine), Benson Quach. The show’s pitch is pretty simple: anyone can send in a mission on their website ( and Daniel will do whatever crazy tasks he’s assigned as the duo road trip across the country. These missions can be anything– he could do you a favor by mowing your lawn or shooting a commercial for your business. Daniel is up for anything as long as it isn’t “super illegal” (his words).

The inspiration from this trip comes from an earlier project, when Daniel spent the summer of 2012 traveling around the world doing favors for strangers: Daniel’s favorite missions from his previous trip include teaching english in Thailand, getting a signed poster for a fan from the Starcraft 2 world finals in Seoul, and helping five different people move couches.

 While the two aren’t asking for anything in return, they are looking for spare couches to crash on ( as they traverse the country. The trip is currently slated to last 30 days and the two are a few days into a Kickstarter Campaign ( to extend the trip through the end of July. “But it’s not about the money”, Daniel told us, “it’s about the missions”.
