About Me

Introvert, but can talk for hours about an interesting topic. Interested in coffee roasting, playing keyboards/guitar and taichi. I really enjoy improvisation in dancing hustle and music.

I don't like big parties and prefer a quiet rest: walking in the warm weather, reading or just having a quiet evening at home.

I like travelling and seeing interesting places. It's usually not the cities that attract me, but some small places with long history or nature.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'll travel to Shanghai soon and spend a week there, so I'm looking for interesting people to talk to and spend some time with in the city.

Music, Movies, and Books

Buckethead is one of my favourite contemporary musicians (esp. his melodic music). Apart from that I really enjoy classical music (Beethoven, Bach, Chesnokov). I don't watch movies a lot, but I do like to read. My recent books are mostly about taichi.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I managed to quit the profession I didn't like and make money doing things that I enjoy (coffee roasting, for example)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can tell you a lot about life in Russia, about Russians in general, local business trends. I also could share my knowledge as a professional coffee roaster and help you to practice English (I have CELTA). I could tell you something new about taichi and meditation as well.

China, Poland
