About Me


I live life that makes me happy. My main mission is to be happy and make others happy along the way.


Hello and welcome to my profile. My name is Matvey, but if it is too hard for you to pronounce, I go by Mat as well. I am from Russia (Siberia) but I have lived in the US, Colombia and Brazil a little. I was born in one of the coldest places on Earth but I didnt really think about it until I left it.

I like to learn about how other people live, learn from their life and share experiences.

I am pretty tall, especially for Latin America - 182 cm. I like to play tennis, ride bikes, eat sushi, talk to people, play the piano. Right now I am learning Spanish and enjoying it a lot. I think I am at intermediate level, generally I can talk about most things without problems.

I like cafes and I hope to have my own cafe one day.


I am a christian.I think we live this life only once and therefore it's smart to make it as cool and bright as possible. Don't want to waste a day of my life. I live life on my own terms and I do what I enjoy.

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.

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 can teach you my wisdom. I can tell fairytails pretty well. I have Angry Birds on my phone.
