About me

by default quiet and shy, though i sometimes fake otherwise.

i am an engineer, a teacher, and a bum.

if you want to check more references, you can visit my couchsurfing profile: http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/dima42 .

i'm probably ideologically more aligned with bewelcome than couchsurfing, but really i'm just glad people share. i'm even more aligned with hospitality exchange without a site ;).

please contact me via direct email instead of through this website. my email is my first name followed by a dot and then my last name at gmail.com.

My interests


piano, travel, strategy games


The Little Prince, Phantom Tollbooth, Bridge to Terabithia, Very Far Away From Anywhere Else, Dispossessed, Catch-22, much of Kurt Vonnegut.


On piano, I'm a pretty big Chopin fan. On guitar, I usually strum some chords and hopefully someone else sings.

I can offer my guests:

Almost nothing! Please note that I won't be looking to spend very much time with you. If you would like an intensive hosting experience, check out some other host. But if you would just like to peacefully coexist in my apartment for 3-7 days I'd be happy to do that.

Other information for guests:

there's an inflatable single person mattress. if you're more than one person, you need to bring your own sleeping supplies.

unfortunately the kitchen is not supplied at all, so you can't really cook here (but storing cold food is fine). i'm in pretty central san francisco.

Public transport:

about 1 hour from airport by bus/train. About 15 minutes from downtown by train.

House Rules:
No smoking.
