I come from a fairly diverse background. I lived in Russia for the first 10 years of my life, and after the socialist regime there crashed and burned, my family and I escaped to the USA and landed in New Jersey. I lived, worked and partied there until two years ago when I took a job in the DC metro area. Like most Russians who come from the "intelligentsia" class, I’m educated and well mannered. I like museums, opera, classical music, classic literature. I also like pop music and nonfiction. I am athletic and I love biking, camping, hiking, and exploring the city and the surrounding areas. Clubs, bars, parks, all are equal game to me. I’m adventurous, love all kinds of sports, I’ll try anything once. Looking for someone to join me in exploring the city, its surroundings, and beyond.
