I consider myself an emoticon enthusiast, and I like to make up new emoticons whenever the situation requires. ,':Y

I’ve also designed and printed a bunch of t-shirt designs to sell over the internet, though I'm all sold out of everything at the moment. You can see those in my portfolio too.
I got my degree in English Literature and I am currently working on a novel. It's about, like, the human condition and stuff.
Though I’ll give my wife the lion’s share of the credit on this one, I did contribute in a small way to the creation of our young daughter, Svetlana. And who knows, I bet we’ll make some more!
