About Me

Russian born, but raised in Canada, and having lived in Europe, I feel that as cheesy to say, I'm a "citizen of the world". Yes, how tacky of me but I had to. Needless to say, I love travel, but for me travel is all about the connections I make along the way.

I am a really friendly, upbeat and energetic person, but also have my quiet/introverted moments. I am curious about the world, love trying new things and cooking new foods. Most of the time I'm planning videos and/or filming, so my life has really become all about my work, but I don't mind it as I absolutely love what I do as that involves in learning about the world. I am into self development and psychology, and love listening to Podcasts.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I run a channel about different cultures, so I love connecting with people from all around the world, exchanging life experiences, having deep conversations and making a stranger into a potentially lifelong friend. I have taken a very long break from Couchsurfing (thus the very incomplete profile) but I have missed the CS community so have wanted to dip my foot back into it.
