I am 32 years old, live in NYC with my husband and two beautiful boys Dmitry and Evan, work in the Asset Management industry and truly think that New York City is the best city to live and raise kids because of its energy and multi-faceted culture, people and experiences. In my free time (which is usually at 4 or 5 AM in the morning) I love to cook and experiment with different cuisines while bringing my own knowledge and culture when developing new recipes, read, photograph life around me as well as write about different topics. I also love traveling and take my kids everywhere I go. So far besides more obvious family vacations in the Caribbean, I went with my kids to places like Iceland, Greece, Portugal and France. Like all New Yorkers I live a very fast-paced energetic life, trying to manage my very demanding career on Wall Street, two very young kids, their busy school and extracurricular activities as well as their successful modeling careers. I also do business development for my husband’s technology consulting company. I am a strong believer that success at work and in life is attributable to being able to balance your creative side with analytical skills and being able to apply them to your life passions to create truly unique experiences for yourself and people around you. So welcome to my world! I really hope that you will enjoy reading my notes and find them interesting, educational and fun.
