Something to Think About
Denis is currently anchored in the wonderful city of Saint-Petersburg with his family – two kids, a Burmese cat, and a sea turtle affectionately named “Turtle.” In his spare time he loves swimming, and tries to do his daily mile whenever and wherever possible. He “cannot live without books, socializing, traveling” and growing in any way. According to Denis, “We never get anywhere by staying in one place!”
