Daria is a neurodiverse, transgender refugee of Russian and Chinese-Kazakhstani descent.
His film vignettes are largely autobiographical, demanding justice and searching for connection through a fragmented past.
At Accountability Mapping, Daria teaches Transformative Justice skills through the body, helping people align their actions with what deeply matters to them. The practice came to him in a dream.
In 2018, Daria co-founded The QTBIPOC Hive with randy reyes to ignite a thriving ecosystem of queer, trans, Black, Indigneous, and poc performing artists on Ohlone land (SF Bay).
Daria's currently honing his clairvoyant mediumship skills through study of the I-Ching, Qi Gong and Chinese BaZi astrology.
