About Me


Currently studying at the Rodchenko art school.

Make myself a better man to make this world a better place.


I'm a 27 years old, was born and raised in Moscow, Russia, traveled the world a lot.
My career started from snowboard shooting and then: travel, documentary, portrait, fashion, surfing, video editing, color correction, some sound design, music production and illustration.

Last year I've become vegetarian to bring some possitive changes to live.

I am quite open to have new experiences in this life, happy to meet interesting people, to share ideas and make something together. My favorite activities are watching movies, swimming, soul parties, yoga, a little bit of dancing, bicycling, snowboarding, surfing and cruising on a skateboard. I love HipHop and Jazz, I love spiritual practices. Making films and clips is my profession, you can check some of my film works at, and my photo flow at
Love with God, live with Peace!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's always great to meet local people, to communicate with them.
Real places instead of hotels.


Me and my friends had a great couch surfing trips in California, New York and France - met a lot of great people.
