About Me

Everything is subject to change. Including this bio. So this bio is by no means telling who I am, nor my preferences and interests are solid and permanent, this is just an introductory image so you can trust me a little bit more.

I'm a human being who got sick of working in the office. Trying to cut everything that makes me dependant 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 6 years. At the moment I'm finishing my job in Prague as a researcher in public mental health and about to quit to begin a new chapter at last.

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

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Travelling for me now has solely the 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.

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 literature can heal a soul.

Any good music can please my ears.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Living 1.5 month in a hut in the Altai mountains with no electricity, internet, running water and gas isolated from people

Teach, Learn, Share

If you want I will be happy to converse about philosophy, freedom or mental health. Or other things that really matter. Are you really that open-minded? I can challenge that.

Would love to learn some yoga and breathing techniques

What I Can Share with Hosts

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