I've been in LA for a year and half and it's great not be in the Chi-raq anymore, not to mention the winters. I love hiking (most notably at Tree People - little hidden gem), work out, watch movies, do outdoorsy things, snowboard, and bike. I have a beagle mutt I that adopted and adore. I work for Solar City and for myself with a new start-up I just launched Peace Bicycles.... and i've never been happier. I also "audition" when possible for fun. Originally I was born in Minsk, Belarus. I love to travel spontaneously and see the world and have been many places including a 2 year stint all over Europe after my freshman year at U of A.
