About Me


to encourage creativity and environmental pragmatism in communities of wonderful people


like most people on this website, i'm always up for meeting new people and trying new things.

i'm kind of obsessed with bikes, utility, the art of listening to music and being a 3rd generation ukrainian.

right now i work for a medical startup making websites and other digital communications things. i'm also a DJ and active participant at MIT's radio station, WMBR.


there wouldn't be so many problems in this world if we were all just nicer to each other... so let's all just be nicer to each other!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


if you sleep on my couch i'll try to show you some neat things!


*never* a bad experience! some highlights include:

hosted alex from france! we played soccer and drank a bunch of beer together. made me want to go to france!

hosted the musician/anarchist biker australians...had a ton of fun together and went on an epic bike ride. they warmed our hearts by sneakily leaving little australian flags everywhere!

ukraine! spent a day at a lake with zena and vika (fantastic people, fantastic night). also met up with valerie and walked around spooky towns.

3 days in seattle with channing and shana - a super bike riding bonanza!

two week long road trip - spent every night on wonderful couches with wonderful people nearby.

one night i had the swedish band fredrik (listen to them too! https://fredrik.bandcamp.com/) sleep on all my futons and couches. it was glorious.
