About Me

I'm a student of Moscow State University Physics Faculty and center of Photonics & Quantum Materials at Skoltech. People say that I am interesting, kind, tolerant, respectful and open-minded person. Besides studying and scientific work I do some stayer athletics and fitness. Also I adore extreme sports such as snowboarding, wakeskating and skateboarding which support a necessary adrenalin level in my blood :) In addition I play an acoustic and classical guitar and even have an elementary musical education in this field. Unfortunately, because of hard working in technological startup, I can't travel as often as I want, so doing it I enjoy every spent minute and new people around me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Obviously it is a great opportunity to explore new places, but the most important for me is that couchsurfing helps to discover a new people of different cultures and lifestyles.

Music, Movies, and Books

Due to my primary music education I prefer to range the music in terms of how much of composer's intellectuality and spirit was invested in songs and that's why I listen a very diversified genres. So, that's what except of classical music I can briefly remember: Aerosmith, Bob Dylan, Beatles, Chuck Berry, Control Denied, Death, Eric Clapton, Judas Priest, Led Zeppelin, Mark Knopfler, Metallica, Police, Pink Floyd, Ray Charles, Rolling Stones, Tommy Emmanuel, U.D.O. At the same time I am convinced that almost every music is good in the right moment. So rarely I give a direct opportunity to my friends to think that I am stupid listening some kind of shit :)

I rarely watch films, but the most memorable were 3 idiots, City of god and The Shawshank Redemption.

Talking about books, I prefer classical Russian literature like Ivan Bunin, Leo Tolstoy, Anton Chekhov and others. Also like some Remarque, Stephen King and Goethe writing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I Jumped a 10 meters gap on snowboard;
I moved in a car trunk with a good friend of mine;
I took a big concert where all songs were composed by me;
I hiked a hundreds km of Ural taiga;
All in all I still have never been drunk :)
