About Me

I grew up and live in Ukraine 🇺🇦 but also lived:
7 years in the USA 🇺🇸 (New Hampshire)
7 month in Lisbon 🇵🇹
4 month in Thailand 🇹🇭
2 month in Argentina 🇦🇷
6+ month in Norway 🇳🇴

During day I run a small IT company in Ukraine - we build websites on Shopify and WordPress
At night I'm working on my YouTube channel


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I host because I want to meet new people, perhaps even make new friends. I want to exchange stories and share experiences. In Almada I have for you a private room with air mattress. I enjoy when surfers bring a small gift from where they are from or offer to prepare their national/favorite food. Please in your request add your opinion if you think Universe is infinite or finite (optionally add why you think so) - so I know you've read this. I'd like to avoid people who just want free room.


➡ 420
I enjoy smoking weed and chilling: watching a documentary or Rick & Mortie or playing a video game

➡ Photo/Video/Drones
That's my biggest hobby so far, flying the drone in cool places - feels amazing to me
I rarely do anything with the footage though

➡ Guitar
I love playing guitar and signing, composed over 20 songs. I can't imagine my life without guitar. It's also a very good emotional release

➡ Video-games
Mass Effect/Fallout/Starfield/Diablo/Overwatch

➡ Psychology
I'm over 3 years in psychotherapy, I feel like a complete different person, much more fulfilled, complete and happy. I love talking about it and sharing experiences. I like transparency/honesty/upfront expectations.
Through discovering and understanding myself I can relate and understand others. Have you heard about Teal Swan?

➡ Philosophy/Astro Physics
I looove wondering how things are made and meaning behind it all. We'll get along if you heard about Amor Fati or the challange to discovering a graviton
