About Me

CURRENT MISSION

In London from 5 till 15 January! Let's meet up!

ABOUT ME

I'm an easy-going person, who likes meeting people more than anything else in the world (be careful - I'm a TALKaholic!).

I'm fond of arts, especially musical theater and cinema and am happy to say that my work is also my greatest hobby.

I'm a polyglot, though I don't always strive up to mastering the language (hence my toddler-knowledge of Spanish, Polish and Japanese), but I'm pretty great at spoken English, German and (of course) Russian.

I graduated Moscow State University, faculty of journalism. I specialized in public relations and have been working full-time since I was 19. I'm currently a Marketing&Communications manager at Dolby Laboratories, working on cool technologies to make arts and entertainment better :)

PHILOSOPHY

I like to be an overachiever and never stop improving myself. I believe there are no limits to perfection and that life is a constant journey to becoming better.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I hope to welcome lots of travelers at my place next year, as soon as I'll have a free room!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've met with a few wonderful couchsurfers in Moscow and France, but my real couchsurfing experience is yet to come :) I am absolutely ready for it!

Interests

Movies, foreign languages, musicals and theatre, traveling, theatre and art criticizm, wild animals (especially lions, tigers and giraffes).

I'm alway up for something interesting and exciting, be it an art exhibition or a thrilling rollercoaster ride.

I'm very curious and love to get to the bottom of things and love to watch people from aside. Also, you're welcome to involve me in any of your hobbies, since I like to learn new things.
