About Me
Hello, I'm Ksenia. I'm a Russian University of Chicago double-alumna who handles operational efficiency for a global research firm (BA in Environmental Studies; MA in Social Sciences). I am passionate about the arts, environment, food and agriculture, classic literature and music, and independent cinema. I've lived in 10 countries and 17 cities and I know how important it is to feel welcome, safe, and comfortable when you're on the road and in someone else's home. I've been an Airbnb Superhost for the past two years and prefer to travel with home-stays, so I always take care of others' properties the same way I take care of mine.
