About Me

Life fascinates me.

'Change is the only constant' -Heraclitus

My massage project: https://popupmassagelondon.wordpress.com/

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love the 'gift-economy' idea and CS was originally all about that. I joined this project some years ago out of need: I was broke and in Spain. Now it's become of life-long importance for me to help others and allow myself to be helped along the road. Exploring a new place by tagging along with whatever your couch-host does is a great way to get to know what life is really like in another culture.

I am aware that CS is increasingly commercialised and for this reason I am moving somewhere I can really Be Welcome*



Interested in so many things, maybe too many.

Some include:

collaboration, sustainability, insects, GIS, coding, remedial massage, dancing,(acro)yoga, languages, debating, contact improv, hulahoop, ariel (silks), capoeira...I could go on

Music, Movies, and Books

Really getting into some classical pieces lately. Current favourite is Frédéric Chopin's "Raindrop" Prelude

This is really quite cool: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLkU1kZrsWU

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spring 2013 I (and 100-200 other people) seiged a big ice-castle deep in a forest somewhere near Moscow as part of a traditional event called Maslinitsa.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you bodywork and maybe some basic salsa or swing dancing, acroyoga, yoga or hulahoop tricks. I also used to teach English to non-native speakers so can help with small things

If work/study the science/tech industries then I'm sure there are many things I want to learn from you. If you're not, I'm sure there are still many things I can learn from you.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Place to sleep in emergency situations. My home situation is currently unstable as I'm studying. I help if I can according to situation. Write to me if you think I can help

Countries I’ve Visited

Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Estonia, France, Italy, Morocco, Norway, Poland, Spain, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom

Countries I’ve Lived In

Russian Federation, United Kingdom
