1. I live now (sometimes) in Michigan. i was born in Kiev, Ukraine 52 years ago. Went to school there (tri-lingual: Russian, Ukraininan, English), then off to the university in Russia 150 km from Moscow to major in Roman-German linguistics. Besides languages, studied world literature. Wrote poetry in Russian since i was a kid, loved Russian poetry, some classical poets (Pushkin and Lermontov), but especially the first half of the 20th century poets (Blok, Pasternak, Mandelshtam, Akhmatova, Tsvetayeva, etc.). Translated some of the English and American poetry into Russian.
2. Moved to the US in the beginning of 1979, lived, worked and studied in Ohio – Engineering and Psychology. Got MBA in International Business in 1991 from Baldwin-Wallace. Worked most of my adult life in the automotive industry, still do international business consulting. Spend most of my time in Europe now – Germany, Austria, Russia.
3. Was happily married for almost 31 years until my wife passed away in 2007. have 2 great daughters and 3 wonderful grand children, 1 more coming soon!
4. I write poetry whenever and wherever – love it and wish i could spend more time writing. Translated some of the Russian poetry into English and hope to translate some more of my favorite Russian poetry into English the way it should be translated, even though it is extremely difficult. Also, recently started to write songs, since I’m able and willing to torture my acoustic guitar and a piano sometimes. hope to spend some time this year working on a cd (wrote 8 songs so far, working on 4 more).
