I was born in Voronezh, Russia.

From age of 9-12 I lived in Ramat-Gan, Israel.

At the age of 12, I have moved to Toronto, Canada, where I have resided since. You could say I got the traveling bug, because since then I have went on an exchange to Maastricht, Netherlands, and before and after visited:

Moscow (of course), London (England), Paris (France), Brugges (Belgium), Luxembourg (Luxembourg), Bern (Switzerland), Interlaken (Switzerland), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Monschau (Germany), Dusseldorf (Germany), Liege (Belgium), Utrecht (Netherlands), Cuba (Varadero, Holguinc, Moron). I've also traveled around United States (Houston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Cape Cod, Detroit, Boston, Orlando, Charleston), and Canada (Vancouver, Montreal, Quebec City, and various Ontario towns).

January 2006, I visited New Zealand, and then had an exchange semester in Sydney, Australia. On the way back from Australia to Canada, my boyfriend, my friend and I went to Japan, where a fantastic person (Thank you Nobu!) showed us around for 10 days. It was magnificent.

I finished my B.Sc. in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence from University of Toronto. It was very exciting, and I loved it.

After graduation I've been to Italy (a whole load of towns), Japan (Motegi, Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara, Himeji, Kobe).

Currently I work for a very large mining company as a project manager.

I am a risk taker: did a solo jump where I had to open my parachute (skydiving, 5 jumps total), enjoyed rock climbing indoors and outdoors (in particular, Australia), jumped off a cliff in New Zealand (like bungee - Shotover Canyon Swing) (twice), enjoy mountain skiing and probably most risky of all, biking to and from classes in Canadian winter.

I like messing around with our apartment and therefore post a large amount of pictures of it. I participate in Apartment Therapy.

I use Nikon D70, with a Nikon 50mm/1.8, Nikon D70 kit lens (f3.5-4.5, 18-70mm), Sigma 12-24mm lens.
