About Me

One day, in 2010, I bought a reflex camera. And then everything started. I began to photograph, joined to a flashmob group, met people which take an important place in my life. Since then I tried a lot of awesome things. And I started to travel. All this has changed me. In the end of 2012 I have finally completed my university and left Russia. During next year I traveled around Europe and South America. I had an incredible experience, learnt foreign languages, met wonderful people and visited places I ever could dream to see. After that, I spent one more year in Russia and moved to Israel. In the middle of 2016 I came back to Russia to work for nonprofit project aiming to build a clinic in a rural area of Guatemala.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing gives me opportunities to travel, to help travelers, to learn languages and to meet fascinating people around the globe. More than enough reasons to be here!


I like hiking and some extreme sports. I engaged in parkour, ropejumping, rooftopping and many others, less exotic. It's interesting for me to understand economic and political situation, how things are going on, especially in Russia. I also can spend hours and hours reading some blogs or articles about progress of science and new technologies. Besides I like learning foreign languages, watching good movies, photographing, etc. Now project development is that I am interested the most.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Guyana, jungle, otters, all these things...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach how not to get lost on the top of Roraima tepui when the next cloud in turn cover you up and the nature of this exotic place suddenly becomes not fabulous but alien. I can tell you about Russia, discuss some psychological topics, and share my philosophy.
