Originally from Russia and raised in New England, I find myself stuck somewhere in between on a cultural level. My Russian friends think I'm "too American" and my American friends shower me with their best "you're so Russian" jokes. However, I acknowledge that I fit some of the stereotypes like being really good at math, eating caviar, or wearing gold chains. Unfortunately, I am still mastering my skills wrestling bears.
I work in the banking industry as an analyst. This is my awesome day job. When I'm out of the office, I write and produce music. I've always been passionate about it. Life is like a portfolio and I believe in diversification.
