About Me

Mostly I am involved with music, classic rock and classic piano. I have played in almost every major city of Russia, from Kaliningrad to Kamchatka, from Murmansk to Sochi. I also love to play chess. I also am an expert on the Climate Crisis - I write for a major news organisation in the USA called PR WATCH - I go to every UN Conference on Climate.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Sometimes I need a place to sleep for a few days - and on Couchsurfing I have had such a fantastic experience - my hosts have several times become great life-long friends! I travel all the time - always! - literally!! - so unfortunately I can not host now - but some day when I have a house or flat I WILL HOST!!
