About me
Born and (partially) raised in Minsk, Belarus. I spent several years going to middle school in Canada.

I absolutely adore smart multifaceted people with diverse backgrounds.

Do you want to find out what it’s like to travel to Uzbekistan as a European? You’d better grab a drink of choice and get ready for some stories from Central Asia (I’ve got plenty).

Not a fan of video games, but I can talk about Pokemon cards and games for hours on end. You can sometimes find me in Minsk in a state of 90s-kid-nostalgia, but most of the time I’m online, fully armed with linguistic word-play jokes and a healthy bit of sarcasm.

Why Minsk
It’s not the physical appearance of Minsk that makes one fall in love with it (at least not in my case). The way this city renders the templates we’re so used to obsolete is what makes Minsk stand out. If I were a foreigner, I’d be very surprised to see electro-buses running along the streets full of Soviet-style buildings. I would be astonished by how things are integrated to work with mobile apps, but at the same time, the downtown is full of “analog” public toilets that need to be manned in order to operate. Minsk is full of contradictions and that’s what I love so much about it.

Where else can you find me online?
