- PhD, MS in Sociology at the University of Glasgow
I was born in the usual Buryat family in the city of Irkutsk. Having an ordinary post-soviet childhood I grew up into a man of many interests. Since my early years I was interested in everything especially Holywood movies. As it was mostly prohibited in Soviet era there were neither subtitles nor good overdubbing, there was only one annoying guy’s voice which was always late to the dialogs. So I could hear all of the original lines, that’s how I got used to kind-of-american accent. That gave me credit on my compulsory for every Russian student lessons of foreign language. As the result I graduated from linguistic university in Irkutsk and started working with foreign tourists since 2005. Needless to say I’m very excited on what I’m doing and always think I can do better, so I opened my small business where I can implement all my thoughts. UUhostel and tours is definitely my beloved creation.
