About Me

UPDATE:
I’m currently backpacking across Europe from Tallinn to Lisbon (there and back again, just like Bilbo). Let’s hang out! I love meeting locals and getting into the vibe of the new place. I’m also trying to find hosts on CS everywhere I go. So cheers and see you somewhere down the road, stranger :)

Either at a coffee place with my laptop working or at the gym. Passionate about science and tech, but also in love with literature and a bunch of other less geeky things. Occasionally I out take my guitar and play Space Oddity or La vie en rose, while no one can hear me.

I have Georgian origins, but was born and raised in the south of Russia, studied in Moscow and then moved to Estonia for my current job as a data scientist. Here, in Tallinn I host surfers, showing them around, listening their stories, and waiting for that moment when I’m gonna grab my own backpack and hit the road.

Hopefully one day I’ll know French well enough to read Victor Hugo in the original. He’s definitely on the list of my favourite authors, alongside with Leo Tolstoy, David Mitchell, Andre Aciman, Stephen King, and some others.

I absolutely adore old-school musicals. Nothing gets me more tearful than Barbra Streisand singing about her heartbreaks. Yes, I’m gay, but it has nothing to do with musicals (honestly).

They say I make good pain au chocolat. It takes 3 days to make, but totally worth it. It's the only thing I'll brag about in this description.

Some parts of my profile are a bit old, but I’m gonna keep them. It’s fun looking back at things I’ve written some years ago, sort of like a time capsule :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Realy love music from musicals, both old movies, like "Hello, Dolly" and recent ones, like "La La Land"
"Call me by your name" is the best book I've read so far. Also I love some of Victor Hugo's books, Harry Potter, LOTR and lots of other books.
