I am an avid reader. My favourites are modern Scandinavian authors, Russian classics and detective stories worldwide (G. Simenon, A. Christie, S. Japrisot and dozens of others). I like paper books much more than electronic and in general like touching things more than watching /listening.
I like learning languages and currently speak four, more or less understand four more, and have tried to learn another four (Arabic, Georgian and two West Africa languages). So, sometimes I speak quite a mix of them!
When travelling, I prefer visiting one city and dive into local live, not cruising and just enjoy tourist attractions. Not so many countries have I visited, but got great pleasure touching foreign cultures - and plan to go on.
I moved from Saint Petersburg (Russia) to Moscow a year ago for sort of carreer advancement, but left my heart back home. Currently occupied in business marketing communications, but have a passion to city branding issues.
