About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Bring coworking to Tbilisi !

ABOUT ME

I quit my job in the Middle East in 2009, bumped into the Language Exchange Club (LEC) in Kiev, and stayed. I now live in Tbilisi in Georgia, where I'm creating the first coworking space in the country (www.cospot.ge).

To recognize me: rather tall and glasses. Hair length at the moment: short.

PHILOSOPHY

see by myself, and not be told

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

The founders of LEC advertised their first conversation meetings on CS to attract native speakers of different languages. Today, you'll meet other people at the meetings of LEC pretty much like you would meet other people at CS meetings in other cities. The main difference is that each meeting of LEC is dedicated to 1 language and better speakers of that language can help others practice. Check the cities of LEC at http://languageexchangekyiv.ning.com/page/other-cities

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I don't systematically couchsurf when I travel, mostly because I seldom plan in advance. I had wonderful experiences couchsurfing in India, in Nepal, in Belarus, in Poland, Latvia... but I keep using CS more to organize real-life conversation meetings between people.

Interests

- languages
- exchanging views with people, discussing life decisions and projects,
- ideas of all kinds,
- walking,
- and still Project Management in different cultural contexts

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Thoroughly enjoying the routine life I had in Kiev recently.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can help you start conversation meetings in the languages you want to practice wherever you live. Although not a technical specialist, I can help with a few PC problems and software maintenance issues. I can also help with writing / editing any text in French and English. And finally, I like very much to brainstorm any idea or issue to find or build solutions.
