About Me

I love cozy mornings and long breakfasts in the kitchen full of sun and smell of coffee. I don't like to hurry but I like to live my life to the limits and always strive for more.
It is important for me to have interesting, fun and intelligent people around. I think friendship and relationships with people should make you grow mentally and emotionally.
I appreciate unexpected adventures that life challenges me with.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's never too late to start :)


Traveling, hiking, painting, cooking, theater, classical arts, analogue photography.
Looking in each other eyes.
Doing something with passion.
Stroking an animal.
Start reading a book and finish it in 6 hours of non-stop reading and get overwhelmed.
Wandering around a vibrant city at all night long.
Blending your mind and soul with nature by the sea or in the mountains.

Music, Movies, and Books

Classics of sci-fi: Ray Bradbury, A.&B.Strugatsky, George Orwell, Stanislav Lem.

In terms of music I was born in the wrong time in the wrong place. 70s Britain is my time machine destination. I am forever in love with glam rock like T.Rex, David Bowie, Rolling Stones and Sweet. But 80s works for me as well: Motley Crue and WASP never get old.

But I still love discovering new music of all possible genres: from indie pop to post rock, from industrial techno to queer hip hop.
Freddie Mercury is the best singer ever lived.

Animation of Miyadzaki will always make me cry of happiness and make me feel like I am getting wiser while staying a child.
I also love pretty much all films of Coen brothers' for their sophisticated humor and mind blowing scenarios.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In 2010 I left my home country to start the life long adventure I never expected. Meeting people from all over the world is the greatest gift that you can get in your life.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love cooking and especially cooking for other people. Do you want to try some russian specialties? Spicy curry? Italian cucina povera? Fresh apple pie or carrot muffins? I'd love to make it and share a nice dinner with you.
