About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Visit Spain and Italy in 20 days!

ABOUT ME

I have been traveling all my life, and cannot see myself not exploring new frontiers.
Since childhood my family moved a lot, and I grew accustomed to this lifestyle. I learned several languages in the process and besides English and Russian, speak Spanish, Swedish and Norwegian.
I am always eager to meet new people, and always keen on understanding what are the issues that drive their lives.
I love to party (and was a party promoter in San Francisco), but will debate you extensively about financial crisis and world economy.
I am one of the founders of not-for-profit organizations where we try to educate population about complex problems (such as abortion or immigration) through complexity theory framework.
