Personal Story

I grew up in the far east of Russia, on the Kamchatka peninsula. Ethnically, I'm half Russian and half Lithuanian. For the past 11 years I've lived in Alaska, California and New York, where I got my Master's degree and got involved in sustainability. Since February of this year, I've made Utrecht my home and I'm looking forward to exploring Holland this summer.
