I don't know what anyone would want to know about me. I grew up in Ukraine and was lucky to live through ukrainian independence from Soviet Russia. I think that had a greater influence on me than one might expect. I am married to the perfect-for-me guy and we have two adorable, entertaining children. I still can't believe how much I love them. I have a couple of biology degrees and teach cell biology at Portland Community College. I love taking photographs, especially of people. I hope to one day organize our family's photos into nice books that tell our story. I love cooking, nutritious meals, cloth diapering, environmental practices, and open-minded people.
