After my wife and I spent 31 years pioneering in Russia, we travelled to Hong Kong. After five years contributing to the local community, we decided to relocate to the UK. I established a credit rating agency in Russia, helped found the CFA Association in Russia (writing the byelaws for elections to the governing council), founded a startup in Hong Kong to produce modern good-looking transport for elderly and disabled people.
My interests are varied, from mathematics to art, from engineering to social theory. In Russia I had a small pottery studio, and I have used acrylic resins and thread to create large decorative pieces.
