About Me

Update: had to leave Russia with the beginning of the invasion of Ukraine and now doing Masters in the States.

I am in love with people and spaces which has made me not only a couch surfer but also an urban researcher. I work at an intersection of social sciences, arts, architecture, informal learning, and activism. If you are ever in my city, I can give you a tour around everything that is DIY, grassroots, and temporary. I am proud that I have made engaging with strangers at unexpected places a part of my job.

My best experiences in life were when I walked for a very long time: once I walked across the whole state of Mississippi, and recently I have covered 180 km on foot through the Russian tundra (one can never have enough of moss!). Other things that are important to me are coffee, books, and changing.
