ABOUT ME

random facts about me:
- I enjoy connecting with people, I'm more into one-on-one's or small intimate gatherings.

- I know how to listen and comfortable being silent.

- I love dancing - swing, argentine tango, blues, salsa, african, hip hop... there's something about expressing the music with my body.

- excited about life.

- always hunting for new things to try. That's what I like so much about traveling - an opportunity to meet new people, new cultures, places, experiences.

- i'm straightforward Russian, i say what I think and not a fan of a small talk.

- currently my homebase is San Francisco- really excited about my new hobbies - slacklining/highlining & acroyoga

PHILOSOPHY

every triggering situation is an opportunity to learn and grow.

"if you want something you've never had you might have to do something you've never done"

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. "
Mark Twain
