About Me


I want to make this planet better.


I am very open minded person. I really love to travel, and I hope, one day, there won't be any borders between countries. I produce movies and documentaries, and I really love my job and want to dedicate myself to it. I inspire myself with traveling, volunteering and trying to make our planet a better place.


People have to share. We have just one life and we don't want to be sorry, when we grow old.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was hosted by really nice people! Some of them are my good friends now!


I am very interested in movies and tv shows, not just as part of my job. A little bit geeky. Love volunteering trips and camps, enjoy teaching, always creating something amazing with my friends, love reading good books. I also love good party and discover city in night!
I want to call myself a fighter for human rights in my country, but I dont have enough resources and I am not that brave to make actions :( I support with all my heart people who make changes.
