Rob Lawless is on a mission, Robs10kFriends, to spend 1 hour, 1:1, with 10,000 different people to learn about their lives and see what comes of opening doors for no particular reason.

He's also been covered by a range of press sources including Philadelphia Magazine, TimeOut LA and Ryan Seacrest on his nationally syndicated radio show, "On Air with Ryan Seacrest."
