ABOUT ME

Hey there! I was born in New York. My mother is Russian and my father is Irish. When I was 3 years old my mother moved back to Russia from the States and took me with her. For a long period of my life I was there. My father and relatives from my mother's side lived here, in New York. I graduated from a high school in Russia, completed the IB Diploma programme in Geneva and after that came back to the USA. I lived in Siberia for quite a long time, so I have some really interesting life experiences. At the time being I focused on studying Pharmacology here in NY.

PHILOSOPHY

Treat others the way you treat yourself

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I had my first experience over 3 years ago and it was really great. I went to MONTREAL where I lived with a very nice host. I also met a lot of really cool couch surfers there. I am still friends with some of them till this day :)

I have also hosted people here in Long Island, NY. It was a pleasure.
