Born and grew up in Sochi, then followed unforgettable years in St. Petersburg, since the millennium I have been living in Germany. Since 2009 my homeport is Berlin. / Berlin is my homeport since 2009.
Doing what I love – supporting people to move over the borders and go over limits. What I mostly appreciate in people is authenticity and faithfullness to their goals and dreams.
I am inspired by – travels, life in the flow, the underwater world, yoga, zen, Sufism, stoicism and life design.
My favorite fable is about a monk and a coin.
