TEDxLansing - Justin "Bugsy" Sailor - Road Tripping: A Journey of People

Justin "Bugsy" Sailor, a native of the Upper Peninsula and MSU alum, has always thrived on setting out on his own, achieving one idea after the next. After graduating from MSU with advertising and sociology degrees he decided to combine the two of them together along with his passions for photography, blogging, and travel. He set out on a year-long 50-state tour, the Hometown Invasion Tour, where he stayed in over 100 households with people he had never met. Sailor returned to Michigan one year later to the day, returning with over 400 blog entries and 12,000 photos documentary his adventures. Since finishing his tour he has created various other projects from scratch including Yooper Steez and Beer With Branson. Yooper Steez is an Upper Peninsula blog that has made an effort of connecting other Yoopers across the world. A Yooper himself, Sailor considers himself to be an Upper Peninsula Ambassador where he can teach others about the Upper Peninsula.
