I'm an enthusiastic traveler and activ, though quiet, man. By the age of 17 I already had seen most of the features in most of our planet's countries, but I still can be enchanted by a sunset or a sunrise, the little local pizzaiolo as well as by the bohemian crystal flutes on the sundeck of a mangusta in St Barth. What I appreciate and look for, is the authentic experience of people true to their ideals and dreams, refinement in relationships, elective affinities, elegance and FUN!! My background finds its roots in a very old and traditional Russian family, though I am French and was raised in Holland. Currently, I am a writer (non-fictional) and I teach international business. I love art, food, ballet, music, and things of beauty.
