About Me


Live, travel, laugh


I spent the winterseason 2012-2013 working in Whistler, Canada. It was amazing six months of my life. After that I spent the summer 2013 in the States and now I am back in my hometown Espoo.

I do not have an own apartment yet, but looking forward to find one soon to host people again.

I love sports, outdoors and traveling. I have lived in Russia and traveled quite much in Europe and a bit in USA, South America and China.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I joined CS because I wanted to host people. I got to host couple of great people already and heard about CS meetings that way. While living in Russia and Canada and traveling, it has been a great way to meet people and hear more about different cultures.


I have had only good experinces hosting. My first surfing experience was with Robbiek in Vancouver. That was great, so I hope I get a possibility to go surfing as well in the future.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Because I love downhill skiing, I must say that the Alps and Whistler Blackcomb. My trip to Iguassu Falls in Argentina and Brazil is something I am going to remember the rest of my life.

Russia is always going to be a special destination for me, because I have spent one year in total there.
