About Me

I am a Russian/American pursuing a master's at the Sorbonne-Nouvelle (Paris 3), making films on 16mm and researching independent filmmakers' laboratories.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have hosted many times in Boston and have surfed in the U.S., Iceland, Sweden and Finland. I've enjoyed the company of everyone I've met through CS. I try to stay in touch with them a little bit and hope we meet again.


Analog film (super8, 16mm, 35mm...), cinema in general, vinyl, bicycling (slowly), trying to be waste-free, coffee.
