About Me


I was born in Siberia, Russia. Since then I have lived in 4 different countries - the USA, Colombia, Brazil and now I am living the largest city in China - Shanghai.


I like sports, motorcycles, any kind of water - lakes, rivers, sea, pizza, cheese and interesting people.


Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used to host when I was in Russia. My family is very hospitable. The last 3 years I was away from my home, so I could not host, instead I stay at people's houses or meet for coffee or something like that.


I have stayed with great from Couchsurfing in France, Switzerland, the US, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Ecuador, Peru. I only had great experiences and hope to keep it this way.


traveling, football, exploring new cultures, pizza, living by the sea, motorcycles, working out.

Music, Movies, and Books

I try not to watch TV too much - why waste time watching somebody else's live when you have your own?

My favorite movie is Showshank Redemption.

TV shows - How I met your mother, Prison Break, Breaking Bad.

I love "Catcher in the Rye" and "Gone with the wind".

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've tried surfing, it looked easier than it was. I would say I failed but I will definitely try again and I will make it work.

I traveled around South America using only buses and had a lot of great experiences along the way.

Traveled around Colombia on my motorcycle.

Camping on the ocean coast in Brazil.

Teach, Learn, Share

Maybe I can teach languages - native in Russian, near native level in English, fluent in Spanish, some Portuguese.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Hope to start hosting soon in Shanghai.
