About Me

I’m a multifaceted individual with a passion for entrepreneurship, art, and culture. As a producer, traveler, artist, and event organizer, my life is a tapestry of diverse experiences. I’m also a skilled massage therapist, bringing healing and relaxation to those around me.

Interests and Values:
Nature, intriguing conversations, and cultural immersion are my soul food. I'm deeply fascinated by social anthropology, always eager to learn new languages and delve into different cultures and communities. My friends and loved ones are my greatest treasures, and I cherish them dearly. Empathy and mutual understanding are the cornerstones of my interactions.

Aspirations and Experiences:
I'm brimming with ideas to make the world a better place. Travel and meaningful conversations fuel my creativity, allowing me to explore and share innovative thoughts worldwide. Being globally aware, I strive to compare and comprehend different lifestyles, aiming to find ways to improve our global community.

Recent Journeys:

2020-2021: I immersed myself in the study of nonviolent communication, practiced medical massage, and participated in traditional Chinese lion and dragon dances (Dragon Crew).
2022: Left Russia just before the war's outbreak, spending a stressful few weeks transitioning. I then explored New York and settled in San Francisco, seeking friendships and exciting opportunities. My experience at Burning Man was nothing short of magical!
Early 2023: Embarked on a road trip across the U.S., from San Francisco to Miami.
Current Location:
Now based in San Francisco, I'm eager to connect with locals and fellow travelers. Whether it's sharing stories, exploring the city, or engaging in fun activities, I'm all in!

Health Conscious:
Fully vaccinated against COVID (5 shots) - health and safety are priorities for me and those I meet.

Let’s Connect!
If you're curious about my adventures, interested in exchanging ideas, or simply looking for a friendly chat, don't hesitate to reach out. I’m always excited to meet new people and build meaningful connections!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Connecting Through Travel:
At the heart of my travels lies a deep-seated love for exploring new places and immersing myself in diverse cultures. Travel, for me, isn't just about seeing new sights; it's about the people I meet along the way. Each journey is an opportunity to connect with individuals from all walks of life, to learn from their experiences, and to share a piece of my world with them.

The Joy of Exchange:
I'm a firm believer in the enriching power of exchanging ideas, cultures, and worldviews. These interactions not only broaden my horizons but also foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of our global community. Couchsurfing, in this regard, is more than a platform; it's a gateway to invaluable learning and friendships.

Couchsurfing as a Global Family:
To me, Couchsurfing is akin to a vast, interconnected family. It's a community where kindness, sharing, and support are the foundations. I am here because I believe that by helping each other, even in the smallest ways, we can collectively make the world a more hospitable and understanding place.

Seeking Spiritual Kinship:
Couchsurfing stands out as the ideal means to find like-minded souls across the globe. It's thrilling to connect with people who share similar values and passions, and who are open to building genuine, lasting relationships. In this community, I find not just travel companions, but friends who resonate with my spirit.

Making a Difference Together:
Every Couchsurfing experience is a step towards building a more connected and empathetic world. I'm here to be a part of that journey, to contribute to this global mosaic of cultures and ideas, and to witness how these
