About Me

Hi everyone, Mickey here..

I'm a gregarious guy and an avid CSer. I live in Santo Domingo and travel often to Haiti and Miami. I've surfed and hosted for many years now, and am very thankful for CS. When I first started on this website, it felt like nobody had CS, so I am proud of its growth. I love meeting new people, because I think it expands oneself to new opportunities.

My motto: "A couch shared, is a friend gained!"

I'm all about the human experience... and genuinely sharing with others. Not the kind of host who makes a list of rules on here, and not the kind of guest who expects my host to drop everything for me.

My main passions are fútbol/football/soccer, FIFA, exploring global culture, and gardening. I used to raise rabbits and turtles, and have an affinity for nature/ecology. Lastly, I aim to acquire/ spread cultural tolerance and acceptance.

I have backpacked around previously and relied on knocking on doors to secure lodging and now hope to be of service to fellow travelers if I can (wish I had discovered this website beforehand!). You are guaranteed to have an enjoyable and safe stay and I think will find me to be a very hospitable host. So yea... come surf some waves!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have hosted around 100 surfers and have myself surfed through many great countries. As you can see in my references, MANY of the people I have hosted were first time surfers or solo female travelers, and I'm glad they trusted me to show them how great CS is. Don't be afraid to contact me. If it's last minute and I'm available, you are also welcome.

Interests

Fotboll/Fútbol/Football/Soccer, music, movies, reading, wildlife, and much more.

I support the greatest football club in the world - FC Internazionale Milano.

I also collect world spirits, so I ask if you come to surf with me to please bring a local bottle of something to add to my collection! Something from your country or native to where your traveling from!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

While backpacking through Scotland, I relied on knocking on doors to secure nightly accommodation. This was an amazing, yet crazy, experience and I am excited to up the "professionalism" of my travels a wee bit through this website!

Hitchhiking Eastern Europe and Central America.

Tried to learn the Faroese language in the Faroe Islands :p

Teach, Learn, Share

The best way to teach is to learn; the best way to learn is to teach. I'm always willing to share my home, drinks, and knowledge and think the world would be amazing if everyone was willing to do the same!
