About Me


making art. living life.


I grew up in Ukraine and live in Canada. I've always been a city boy at heart, though I'm now also feeling quite at home inside tents/oceans/etc. I take photographs, of seemingly nothing in particular. I love live music and other late night shenanigans, all manner of foodstuffs, sunny beach times, bike rides, and anything else out of the ordinary. And most of all people, they are wonderfully kooky in their amazing variety.


I try for a humanist, live and let live type of outlook ...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host and surf, as much as I can. I hope to join a CouchSurfing volunteer collective house one day and stay for a while, that would be rad.


I've had many visitors - from USA, England, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Finland, Poland and lots more to come. I have also stayed with *awesome* hosts in USA, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Thailand, Latvia, and Estonia. It's all been just super :)


Live music shows & parties, photography/drawing/etc at the studio, going to art openings, reading a good book, all sorts of trips, exploring at random, cooking, time with friends. Oh, and nerdy board games.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like our local live music scene, especially indie, electronica, and good blues & jazz. Yes, I do read and have a film addiction, so we may have some of those to talk about as well :)
