I've spent half of my life in the former ussr, and I've retained much of russian (or, I guess, russian-jewish) background. You could say I am only half-assimilated into the US culture, but I don't view it as a disadvantage - after all, two cultural perspectives are better than one!
I can usually make others laugh and I value a good sense of humor in people. I am actually a strong believer in curing diseases and sorrows through laughter and enjoyment.
Travel is my real passion, I want to see all the exciting places around the world. I've visited 16 countries around the world and have definite plans to keep that number growing. I just wish my employer played along and offered me a much longer vacation for traveling :)
Favorite activities? Well, there is hiking, tennis, bicycling and roller-skating when its warm. When cold, it's skiing, ping-pong, watching good movies, or simply reading in a cozy armchair by the fireplace. There is definitely more (I promise), but the full list can probably wait...
I am looking for a fellow spirit, fun on life, with a good sense of humor. Common background (i.e. russian language) is a plus but is definitely not a strict requirement :)
