About Me




Right now I'm taking a bit of a break after college, translating poetry for fun (Russian-English), studying for GREs, and making soups.

I'm looking for friends to hang out: go hiking, swimming, berry picking, singing, or whatever else you might fancy.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I have had only good times with my hosts.
I also thoroughly enjoyed showing Moscow to one of my San Francisco hosts when he made it to Russia. Hope, there will be more of those to come.

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. I have a lot of feelings about that day. Ask me about it, and I'll get really excited to tell you, promise. :)

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.
