Join Couchsurfing to see Mitchell’s full profile. It’s free!
Native of the Atlanta area, originally from rural Georgia, moved to the suburbs with my family in my teen years, and now am a proud resident of the transitional and historic neighborhood of Old Fourth Ward in the city of Atlanta.
I live in the first-story of a large 2-unit house. I occupy 1 of the 3 bedrooms and have two housemates. They generally stay busy, are usually gone, and keep to themselves.
Also, I have a blog at: overnighttra.in
I am gay queer lgbt friendly.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've done couch surfing in many American cities and almost all the experiences have been exceptional. I love the idea of people giving what they can and taking what they need.
I love hosting people and showing off the many historic and changing aspects of this diverse city landscape.

Teach, Learn, Share
I'm not a great cook, but I can definitely share what I know!
I was also a student of classical piano for (7) years - I can definitely teach some of that. I've written some pieces that are personal and really just for my own enjoyment.
Most of all, I'm a big fan of the outdoors so I can share my knowledge of (and sometimes transportation to) great hiking areas around Atlanta.
What I Can Share with Hosts
It depends, I have a large bedroom (that is more like a studio) and lofted bed, so there is plenty of space to sleep on a pad in the bedroom on the floor.
Alternatively, surfers could also crash on one of the two couches in the living room, however there is little privacy and sometimes it is a noisy area.
I work 730 to 430 during the week - so I generally only host on the weekends and do not allow surfers to stay at my shared house while I am gone.
I can offer some transportation, but please arrange to have your own.
Lastly, I have lived in Atlanta for quite some time, so I can definitely offer some advice on where to go or what to do, depending on what you are looking for while you are visiting.
I am less than a mile from the Beltline trail, and one mile from the edgy, hipster, and diverse bar district on Edgewood Avenue (see Joystick, Mother, and Sister Louisa's Church) and downtown Streetcar Route. There is a Publix supermarket half a mile away, and various shops and restaurants within a 20-30 minute walk. Lastly, I am only a mile south of Piedmont Park - Atlanta's flagship green-space. Old Fourth Ward park is a 10 minute walk.
For Transit, there are a few bus routes that run nearby, but they are not reliable or frequent. I would suggest planning your trip and walking to the rail line on either North Avenue Station or Civic Center station - both are a 20 minute walk.
