Hey. I was born in Soviet Union in 1979. I am from Crimea, Ukraine, where I lived until 2001. I lived in a small village near Simferopol, then studied in a university in Simferopol. i got my BA in accounting (yawn). Then in 2001 I moved to Budapest, Hungary to study, and graduated in 2003 from Central European University with an MA degree in Economics. I love Budapest, and I managed to learn some Hungarian. Between 2003 and 2005 I lived in Amsterdam, Netherlands. I got my second master's degree in economics there. at first i did not like the city but now i miss it.
from August 2005 till November 2007 i lived in Baltimore, MD, and studied at Johns Hopkins University. those were two best years of my life. now I live in London, UK.
i speak Russian, Ukrainian, and English fluently, some Hungarian, Dutch. now i am learning Spanish :-)
i am into martial arts, particularly kickboxing and taekwondo. but i also want to do jiujitsu. i wish i could find the time to try all the things i want to do: yoga, rollerblading, surfing, jazz dance.
