About Me

(🏳️‍⚧️ Pronouns: she/her)

In 2021, I was living in Krakow and running a software consultancy. Moved to Kyiv at the end of the year; then the war broke out. In 2022, I was teaching web development and piano to kids in Warsaw. Now it’s 2023, and I work in a bank and run around in a poncho.

Chaotic energy gang. Hugs. Bubble tea.

🚬 I’m very smell-sensitive :/ If you are a heavy smoker, it would be hard for me to host you. Sorry!

☎️ If something happens and you urgently need a place to stay for the night, text me at +48884759614. CS notifications don’t work for me for some reason.

Music, Movies, and Books

I mostly listen to
— rock (classic/indie/etc),
— anything with piano or violins or both,
— jazzy things,
— and occasionally electronic-ish things.

You can check out https://artyom.me/music to see what specific bands I like.

The movies section is bound to go out of date, but eg. Lars von Trier's “The House That Jack Built” was cool. “The Father” with Hopkins was cool. Also — Hamilton! I really like musicals in general.

Shows: I love British panel shows (like WILTY), classic sitcoms (like The Office), and absurd somethings (like Peter Serafinowicz or the Fairbairn Films sketches).

I mostly read non-fiction nowadays. In 2022 I was heavily interested in modern Russian history — Soviet Union and what came after. What will 2023 bring? Dunno.
