Born in Moscow, raised in NYC, and moved to Cali about 10 years ago. I currently work as a psychotherapist and absolutely love what I do, even with the increased stress that comes with the job. I spend a great deal of time outdoors with my dog, as you can tell from my pics, and find it helpful that the people in my life get joy from animals. I try to stay active and have recently taken up running, did my first half marathon about a month ago, as well as tennis and skiing. As most, I enjoy traveling and have been doing quite frequently recently….thankfully .
