About Me


I am doing my research at Aviation University in Kiev specifically in air traffic simulation. Apart from that, as probably every person on this site I adore travelling, mostly as an independent backpacker, always looking for new destinations all over the world. Perhaps you know this feeling - it's never enough as the world is infinitely diverse and inconceivable but that's the challenge. There will be always something to discover, to experience, to try to understand, maybe vainly but it's so interesting!

Je m'intéresse beaucoup à tout ce qui est lié à la culture francophone, c'est-à-dire des livres en version originale, des cinémas, des émissions de radio/podcasts et des documentaires sur youtube surtout celles dediées aux sujets historiques et geographiques comme par exemple "2000 ans d'histoire" sur RFI ou "Un oeuil sur la planète". Et bien évidemment que ça me fera plaisir de rencontrer des gens parlant cette belle langue.

Soy ingeniero de investigación y desarrollo, trabajo en la Universidad de la aviación. A mi me gusta mucho mi trabajo, porque hago la simulación de los vuelos, estudio lo que es relevante para aviones. Es una profesión complicada y bastante dinamica. Siempre me encanta descubrir algo nuevo, emprender los viajes independientes a los paises lejanos, las montañas y la naturaleza en general. Me falta mucho la práctica de Español, por eso aprecio cada oportunidad de hablar esta lengua y conocer un poco más de la cultura de los países hispanohablantes.
