I used to live in Southern California and enjoyed it much more than I ever thought when I left San Francisco.... Now I live in Paris, France. I do not speak French (yet) so if someone is willing to help me I promise to be the most diligent student.

I love living back in Europe but unfortunately I do not have much free time to enjoy it the way I would like to. Prior to moving to Paris in the summer 2015 I lived for 3.5 years in Mannheim, Germany. I loved it very much and still miss it. Prior to moving to Europe I briefly lived in Western Connecticut on the New York State line. I tried to cope with the East Coast, winter, and the rural environment. I never imagined that I would ever live in such a place but the funny thing is that I think that I kind of liked it, at least for as long as it lasted. Shhhh, nobody pretends to hear what I just said.... I am over 18 years old and if you want to see what I look like - here you go:


One of my passionate hobbies is photography. I started with film SLR and now am shooting exclusively digital.

My digital camera is Nikon D70
Early on I used Nikon Coolpix 995
My film camera is Nikon N90S

I use Nikkor lenses:
28-70mm 3.5-4.5 D
70-210mm 4-5.6 D
70-300mm 4-5.6 G
50mm 1.8
60mm 2.8 D micro (macro lens)

I am very happy that all my lenses from the N90 SLR days fit perfectly the digital SLR. A while ago I acquired a new telephoto lens from Tokina 100-400mm f/4.5-6.7 and enjoy it a lot.

I love using Photoshop on my pictures and sometimes alter reality to my tastes. It is a lot of fun!

My other hobby is traveling and I take tons of pictures during my trips to Europe and South America.
