About Me


Discovering NYC!


Writer, art history student, bartender, big coffee drinker, hopeless dreamer, like to stare at people walking by while sitting in a cafe, get lost in every city i visit. I was born in Moscow and moved to the Netherlands when i was 8 years old. For the past 4 years i have been living in Utrecht, the Netherlands, studying art history and working at Amsterdam Airport on the side. In the summer i'm moving to NYC to do a MA Art History at NYU, which i am super excited about!


"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." - Marcel Proust

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Used to have a couch available back in the Netherlands. In NY I can hang out.


Couch surfed in New York and met some great people through couch surfing!
