I have given talks on student debt, environmentalism, roaming rights, my book Walden on Wheels, and my Keystone XL expedition (as told in my second book Trespassing across America). I have co-presented with environmentalist Bill McKibben in Middlebury, Vermont. I have given talks at numerous colleges, high schools, conferences and events. I have appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CBS This Morning, LA Times video chat, Fox Business Channel, CBC News, and others.

If your high school, college, group, or bookstore is interested in hosting me as a speaker, please send an email to me at spartanstudent@gmail.com. I am available for writing workshops, keynote addresses, and general speaking engagements. I am happy to talk to book clubs and high school classes over Skype, free of charge.
