I was born in West Siberian region of USSR and grew up in Post-Communist Russia. At the time, The Iron Curtain has fallen, and I was fortunate to catch a travel bug from early childhood. Constant thirst of adventure took to me to the many unusual and amazing places on earth, where I had a chance to experience living amongst other cultures, to get education in Hospitality and Travel Industry and truly become a person I am today.

My first introduction to life in Vermont and its very welcoming people was while in High School. As an exchange student, I stayed with American family in Fairfax. Many years later this unique state became my home, where I live a typical life of a Vermonter filled with spending time on Lake Champlain, hiking, learning snowboarding, practicing hot yoga, dance, traveling to Montreal and enjoying farm to table culinary movement.
