Fun facts about Yurii
Do you have a secret talent (*cough* superpower) you want people to know about?
I know how to ride a motorcycle. It’s not as easy as it sounds or looks. I’m still learning and improving. But I took my wife on a ride and picked up from school my daughter Varvara. She was happy and proud.
What is your favorite thing to do after work or on the weekends?
Take my daughter to her after-school activities, she does horseback riding, it’s beautiful in the countryside here in Northern California. We also have an English Cocker Spaniel, his name is Teddy. I like taking him for a walk, but sometimes I enjoy doing nothing 😉
