About Me

CURRENT MISSION

A couch shared is a friend gained!

ABOUT ME

Wuttup people, Mickey here! I'm a gregarious guy and an avid CSer. I am currently teaching high school History in Port-u-Prince, Haiti. I previously lived in Miami, FL and the NYC-area. I've surfed and hosted for six years now. I love meeting new people, because I think it expands oneself to new opportunities.

My main passions are futbol/football/soccer, FIFA (xbox), reading, TRAVELING, exploring global culture, and gardening. I used to raise rabbits and turtles, and have an affinity for nature and 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!

PHILOSOPHY

A couch shared is a friend gained.

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.

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