About Me

At first I may look like an introvert (and that's true), but in five minutes I will transform into open-minded and sociable person.
I just need a little time =)
I like to set goals that exceed my current abilities, it helps to develop faster and each new time to set goals that are much more difficult than before. I have a large number of dreams to achieve, and I hope to fulfill them throughout my life.


Wherever you go, whatever happens - be yourself and never give up. Always improve yourself, be strong, be kind, be patient and help others even if you know they won't help you back. Don't hurt anybody even if they do harm to you. Never try to prove to anybody who you are, your actions will speak for themselves.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I would like to meet people from around the world and make new friends, because I'm inspired by how much we are different and how similar at the same time. I'm inspired by how much I don't know about other people and other cultures and hope making this gap smaller each new day.


I'd like to get more life experience, develop myself into a person I want to be, make new achievements and travel as much as I can =)

Music, Movies, and Books

I like movies with good story lines and deep meanings and a few that I recently watched are "Loveless" by Andrey Zvyagintsev / "A Man Called Ove" by Hannes Holm / "The Square" by Ruben Östlund / "Manchester by the Sea" by Kenneth Lonergan / "A Ghost Story" by David Lowery / "Black Mirror" and "Dark" series.

Mostly I listen to rock or modern piano music but it's difficult to select favourites because there are a huge amount of different bands I listen to =)

I fond of different books, but favourites for now are Lev Tolstoy with his "Path of Life" / Jack London with "The Star Rover", "Northland Stories" and "Martin Eden" / Fyodor Dostoevsky with "The Brothers Karamazov".

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share my experience in different parts of life and tell some fun stories from traveling or life in Russia =) It will be interesting to cook some Russian cuisine together, or a a favorite dish from your country.

I'd like to learn about your country, culture and language. Also I collect "letters" in different languages in my pocket-book so it will be cool if you'll write me one too =)
