About Me


I've recently moved to Vienna to do research in economics (which i have been doing for the last...quite many years already). Otherwise, i am an undercover hippie and a downshifter, aspiring to become a bus driver.

Music, Movies, and Books

don't read books, sorry. can't stay focused. the last thing i read and enjoyed was bulgakov. good stuff.

moviewise i'm apparently leaning towards indie and art house, but would also enjoy some mainstream production on occasion. last thing i watched and liked: synecdoche, new york and my joy (russian). i also love discovery and NG shows about disasters, air crashes, etc.!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach languages, math&economics-related stuff (stats, probability theory, econometrics) and other boring things. I also pride myself on showing my friend how to ski, without actually being much of a skier myself.
