About Me

I am taking it easy at this point in my life, I feel like I've travelled quite a bit now and am really enjoying just being in one place for once. :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I started as a couchsurfer when I was in college and had one chance to return the favor a bit to one of my San Francisco hosts when he made it to Russia. Now I am living in Portland, ME and open to meeting people to hang out with.

Interests

Reading, hiking, berry picking, dancing, singing, poetry reading, translating

Music, Movies & Books

Story and animation Hedgehog in the Fog and other animations by Yuriy Norshteyn, Miyazaki animation, Still Alice by Lisa Genova
I like listening to pop music cause it makes me want to dance :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Spending a whole day with a friend in Naha looking for a Ryukyu glass with bubbles that form a wave. The great finale was my friend buying a couple of glasses that were made for each other, one that looked like a sunset and another one that resembled a starry night.

Teach, Learn, Share

Hmm. I can teach swimming, used to be a lifeguard.
I have taught some of my friends ice-skating, though I am really somewhat of a beginner myself.

Belgium, Canada, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, Puerto Rico, Russian Federation, Ukraine, United States
