About Me

I'm just a human being who got sick of working in the office. Trying to cut everything that makes me related (or should i say dependent?) to the system where we live in.

Originally from Uzbekistan, I spent some years as a child in Israel and lived in London and Prague for the last 5 years. At the moment I'm finishing my job in Prague as a researcher in public mental health and about to quit to find out what is the right way to live.

I'm deeply interested in what madness is and what we can do about it and consider modern psychiatry is a shitshow., interested in philosophy, mental health and counsiousness.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Travelling for me now has solely a purpose of meeting people and learning rather than visiting tourist destinations. Flying somewhere, booking a hotel, and going to a museam is unimaginable to me. I'd rather hitchhike and couchsurf in the nearby town.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
Very saddened by the fact that once I got a couch specifically to host people in Prague, Corona started. I wish to have more hosting experience but now I do not have my own place anymore.

Music, Movies, and Books

Great Russian Classics such as L. Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Bulgakov, Lermontov, Pushkin, Solzhenitsyn, Chekhov - I can talk about them endlessly. I truly believe that books can heal a soul.

Listening exclusively to live music (of any sorts but instrumental jazz and rock are almost never disappointing)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hitchhiking in the Caucasus for 1 month and making a photobook about the journey.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you want I will be happy to converse about philosophy, the meaning of life or mental health. Or other things which really matter.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook a delicious vegan Uzbek plov for you - the piece of art of regional cuisine.
