01 Hello

My name is Andrey.

Welcome to my home page. I will tell you a little bit about myself. Sit back and relax.

This is story time

02 Where am I from?

I am often asked this question. It always confuses me since I do not have a simple answer.

I was born in Russia. I grew up in European part of the country. Later on I moved to Moscow and spent a few years in the capital. One day London became my home. I live there... from time to time.

I am based on the Earth

03 Family

One cold and windy November day back to 1982, my mom gave birth to a son. Few days later my dad, grandpa and grandma welcomed us home.

They named me Andrey.

My journey kicked off

04 Love

If you asked me whether I believe in love, I would say YES. If you asked me whether I believe in lifetime relationships, I would say NO.

Life is dynamic and everything changes... quite often.

I follow the music

05 Friends

In the past I used to think that friendship lasts forever. The truth is people come, people go.

I surround myself by those, who share my dreams, my passion and my ambitions. When my life situation changes, people around usually change as well.

My social circle is my reflection

06 Dream

I thought I would be happy one day. The day when all things from my long list become real. Then I realised happiness is a journey, not a destination.

I struggle to recognise my genuine desires from those that are imposed on me. Keeping in mind time is limited, making the right choice is crucial.

I am on my way

07 Computers

One day I came home from school and found my dad playing a video game on a computer he had just assembled out of nothing. It was a turning point in my life. I am a software engineer.

Technology is my passion and profession

08 Finance

I always thought banks were boring. They are. Unless they are investment banks. I dived into finance by an accident and the industry caught me quickly.

It is inspiring and challenging realm

09 Travelling

I dreamed of travelling. One day I started. Since then I have been to all continents. I saw green fields, forests, oceans, deserts, mountains and snow lands. My country counter exceeded a hundred. This is an addiction. The one I am not going to deal with.

The world is wonderful

10 Self-development

In my early years I thought I knew everything. At the same time reality did not satisfy me. It was an indication there is something wrong in the matrix.

I started to invest time, efforts and emotional energy into myself. It is hard and sometimes painful, but it is worth it.

I WANT MORE

11 Aviation

Every boy dreams about aviation. I did. Until the dream came true.

I doubted whether it was exciting or not. I tried. Now I know it is mine. Flying is not a one night stand. It is a long term relationship.

Golf-Charlie-India, you are cleared to take off

12 Sailing

I am excited by coastal scenery, marinas and towns easily accessible from a boat. Cruising trip on a yacht is an excellent way to spend time with friends.

As a day skipper I have many opportunities to explore marine world.

Welcome aboard

13 Moto

Two wheelers were always on my list. As soon as I got a full motorcycle license I found, that riding a bike on daily basis was not as cool as I thought.

Though, it excels if you turn it into an adventure.

Would you join me for a ride?

14 Skydiving

This is the most complicated hobby I have got.

I thought I was going to be scared. Then I would jump and feel happy. It does not work this way.

Skydiving is an inner war and a serious challenge for me

15 Thank you

Thank you for staying with me.

I am on my journey and always looking for someone who is keen to share my lifestyle, values and beliefs.

Welcome to my world.

See you soon
