About Me

ABOUT ME

I'm pretty humble guy but I get along with people well. I don't bear bragging and lies in any form. I do not have (okay, try not to) any stereotypes towards people of any nations, religions, colors, etc. I don't judge anyone by where they from and what language they talk. I enjoy discovering new cultures, countries and places.

PHILOSOPHY

Give before you take.

Keep the world clean for myself and for others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

So far I have only met some people to show them around Saint-Petersburg. It went cool and fun! Sadly I don't have a chance to provide an overnight stop as I live in a rented flat and owners don't allow to let strangers in... but I will gladly meet you in the city, walk and show around! I love to share culture, experience, thoughts, stories, points of views on anything. The more people you meet the more you know. I want us all to know each other better to make the world a better place:) So if you want a company to see the city please contact me. I will be glad to help you!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I think this project is amazing. Such an obvious idea came to someones head and I want to thank all who participates here.

Music, Movies, and Books

Styles of music I like are trip-hop, instrumental hip-hop, downtempo, alternative rock, etc...

Okay...as for books I do like many of them. My latest favorite book is "A Clockwork Orange" by Anthony Burgess. The language which is used in this book is amazing. Mix of English and my native Russian. I also love everything I've read so far by Douglas Coupland, particulary "Generation X". "One Over the Cuckoo's Nest" by Ken Kesey and Jerome David Salinger's "The Catcher in the Rye" are also in my top. Mark Twain, O'Henry, russian classic is what I like as well. I love Jack Kerouac's style of writing. And Charles Bukowski.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I moved to England after graduation to live there for 1,5 years. May be doesn't sound like something big but believe me that wasn't really easy due to burocracy issues.

Parachute jump off 2000 metres!

Teach, Learn, Share

Well I don't teach much. Maybe some Russian, English or French if you like!;) I can give some tips on taking photos on cheap plastic film cameras (which i personally use). I played accordeon but it was so long ago that I already lost all my skills!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can show yu around Saint Petersburg. It's very beautiful, especially in summer.
