I am originally from Ukraine and have lived in the US for most of my life - both on the east (DC) and west (LA) coasts. I have also lived in Austria, France, and Germany. I am now back in LA, working as a PhD student in communication, and I am also a yoga teacher. I love love animals, especially dogs. In my free time, I like to explore the city, have dinner parties with friends, listen to reggae, practice yoga, of course, read and go out dancing. I speak Russian, English, French and can understand some Spanish and German.
