 Favorite GYV Memory:

It’s been 12 years since I left GYV and it’s hard to recall all the details clearly.  A lot of things were completely different for me, but I guess the unusual vegetarian food made the greatest impression. It took a couple of weeks to get used to it.  I can say many good words about the people I met who helped me to have a great time there and to eliminate strong stereotypes.


I’m Russian, I grew up in Samara, now I live in Moscow and work for an oil company, Gazprom.  .   I’m currently the deputy head of the crude oil export department. I’m married and we have a daughter. I enjoy  sports, cars and travelling
