Born and raised in Moscow, but I have been in the US for over 13 years, and I am a US Citizen. I am just as much a New Yorker as I am a Moscovite, even though I don't live in either place.
I believe in the therapeutic power of laughter, long and short road trips, good books, chocolate and cooking for the one I love.
My exercise routine is not likely to impress a true fitness fanatic. I find most gym-related activities mind-numbingly boring. Having confessed that, I do walk two salukis (who can run at 40 miles per hour) for at least 1 hour a day. This form of exercise has the added bonus of hearing “you have beautiful dogs” at least once a day – and on most days, my hair still looks better than theirs!
I will try everything that is legal at least once. However, some favorites are good conversation, getting dirty renovating my quirky old house, experimenting in the kitchen, reading anything from "The Nine" to junk, and spending time with friends.
If you share any of my beliefs and interests, please write me – don’t just browse. That way we can begin by knowing the courage of our convictions.
