About Me

*** If you are UKRAINIAN running from Russian invasion, text me via any messenger, my number is under My Home section. ***

Raising a child by day, trying to figure out how to teach programming and math to all the kids in the world by night.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

With me it started off as "hosting to be hosted later" idea, only quickly it turned out that hosting is fun in and of itself.

I see CS as a life-style exchange. Every now and then I "steal" a habit or a point of view from someone.


Weeell, functional programming and associated mathsy fields are the obvious major interest. Minor interests are all kinds of sports and wandering in the country side.

  • mathematics
  • rationality
  • cycling,

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies are a waste of time :) but I do indulge, and can name 3 which had some impact on me and weren't an utter waste of time: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Dogville, Pan's Labyrinth.

To be honest, I'm a music illiterate. If music is unavoidable, I prefer it be euro 80s style, which again proves my original point. That being said, concerts and festival are fun.

Books... my Kindle is chock full of textbooks. It's been ages since I've read a work of fiction, I'd appreciate a tip for a good one.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In every aspect I can think of I know of someone vastly superior to me. Oops.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach excessive skepticism.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A spare bicycle.
