About Me


To live a passionate and adventurous life. I recently fulfilled my life long dream of traveling around the world for at least one year. Nonetheless, my journey will last a lifetime, and I am now on a mission to visit every country in the world.

I believe we call come into each others' lives for a reason, however big or small. I wish to meet and share stories with as many people as possible, from as many backgrounds as possible.

I now live in Honiara, in a cute studio apartment. Maybe I can host you!


I was born to be a traveler and am fascinated with cultures and new places. I am half-Russian and half-Cuban and was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, and have lived in Cuba, Canada, United States, Tajikistan, the UK, and Iraq.

I just spent two years living in Iraq and working for an international NGO. Two years in this country is enough to drive anyone crazy, so I'm taking a year to recover from that experience. And yes, I have countless stories to share from that experience. :-)

I love to meet new people and absorb new viewpoints. I always come to a new country with an open mind and leave as a more enlightened individual. I am passionate about photography and always have my camera close by.


My country is the world, and my religion is to do good.

Music, Movies, and Books

Alan Watts was a life changer (The Wisdom of Insecurity is a must-read). Also really admire Jiddu Krishnamurti and Aldous Huxley, amongst a variety of other philosophers. Michael Singer's Three essays on universal law: The laws of Karma, will, and love.

Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic and The Signature of All Things. James Michener's The Drifters is an amazing testimony to youth, idealism, and travel.
