About Me

I mostly stay in Saint Petersburg, doing civic educational project 'Trava' and currently campaigning for the World Cup period (http://cupforpeople.spb.ru/).

Main interests: horizontal cooperations, solidarity economy, cooperative housing, wastecooking, p2p edu, civic edu.

I used to travel a lot for last 5 years and now working on my projects more but host rarely with the lack of free time. If it happens, I can guide you through local community of activists, creative and social enterpreneurs.

When I'm traveling I'm interested in politics, arts, activism and grassroots initiatives, also cities' routine, daily life of people. The best thing is to make something good for a place: go clean the beaches from trash, cook and feed people outdoors, organize a party for random people in the park. Now I go somewhere more for study or exchange.

[ Sorry, I won't be able to host you for the World Cup cause with the flatmates we'v rented out all space:( But please let me know if you wanna joing the campaign.]
