About Me


Traveling, studying, finishing my MA


Have spent the last two years in Germany, Freiburg im Breisgau. I left Moscow in 2013 in order to proceed with my studies and get a change in life in general. Now approaching the final stage of my master's program, working with kids part-time, doing some English-German-Russian translations in a local German company, doing students' jobs here and there in order to earn a living while working on my masters thesis. Absolutely enjoying my life inhere.
The plan is to move to München once finished with the studies, settle for a while, get a permanent job, perhaps start an internship in clinical pedagogy.

I do sports for fun: whatever goes with boards (skate, long-board, surf, wake, kite-surf, wake, snowboard).

The rest of my free time i spend with my international friends i got to know here two years ago - well we go out to musical evens a lot, sometimes just to dance, sometimes to enjoy the scene; grilling at lakes, chilling out at each other's places cooking playing music, table games, watching films etc.


be natural & honest to yourself.have fun

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Currently in Freiburg! Not hosting since i'm being too much outdoors working&studying.

I will be happy to meet nice people here in Freiburg and show them places, it is also possible that I could help find a place to stay.-not that many people come to freiburg though :D


Quite a big one! Met some very wonderful people in the USA (LA, LV, SF, Miami), Morocco (Marrakesh), Germany (Stuttgart) etc. Still remaining in contact with most of them, got close friends with a couple.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Almost died while riding a banana-boat.
The most amazing thing so far is what I get when working with children.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've never had an experience of teaching Russian, but it is surely possible. As is German and English exchange. I can play piano and sometimes i paint
