About Me

I'm a sociologist and non-profit NGO activist (Foundation of Regional Initiatives). Currently I work at British Council Ukraine at Active Citizens programme.

I've visited 35 countries in Europe and Asia during my bachelor study, but now I rarely go out of the country. Most of my recent travels are job-related.

I can host you for 1-2 days in Kyiv, if you're about my age and understand what comfort zone is:)

Any musicians, hitchhikers or NGO activists are welcome.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meeting new people is the easiest way to discover different cultures all around the world and CS provides lots of advantages for that.


Mainly, I’m interested in non-formal education, social science, politics and modern art. My other hobby is simulation games, which I both design and moderate.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share some experience about working with a Harvard professor in Syberia,

Also can share and translate some nice examples of Ukrainian modern poetry.
And, of course, our traditional cousine:)
