READ MY COUCH INFORMATION FIRST!
Originally from Mississippi but move to California for skateboarding and lived mostly in LA for the better half of a decade. I traveled abroad for a couple of years doing volunteer work, random gigs, and teaching English. Now I'm living in NYC mostly for the simple fact it's the only place in the States you don't have to drive haha.
I spend my days people watching, drinking copious amounts of coffee, wandering down alleyways, rendezvousing quietly in libraries, and sipping whiskey.
Currently I'm working in tech along with doing some personal side projects. Lately I'm pretty keen on making music, soaps/aftershaves/pomades/candles, and obviously traveling as often as I can.
Here's some of my music: http://mickeymickeyrourke.bandcamp.com/
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm on here to meet interesting people and hopefully stay connected with them, become friends ya know. To give and get by way of crashing couches.
I let people crash at my place and crash at fellow surfer's who are generous enough to host me. I'm also down to just meet up with people and show them around wherever I'm living.
skateboarding. traveling. road trips. music. meeting new people. making funny faces. bad jokes. Analyzing things that don't matter. movies. visiting new places. floating in pools. house parties. random tattoos. Photography.
