I was born in St. Petersburg, Russia and came to America in the mid 90's. I joke around a lot, so a sense of humor is a must ;) I'm a pretty big movie buff and try to watch them when I can. I'm hardworking, level headed, focused and motivated. I am very close with my family, and they are an important part of my life. But at the moment I am passionate about Law, as I do feel I can make a great, meaningful career with it. I began martial arts at the age of 5 and now have two black-belts, one in Taekwondo and one in Sambo. In highschool I was an all metro football player and wrestler. I had many scholarship opportunities out of highschool to play football in college but chose to pursue academics (Division I sport schedule isn't conducive with tons of hours in the library :-P )I am also passionate about writing, I've written a few novels which I am editing. I also love keeping up with sports (football and basketball, though I do like some soccer here and there).
