Words on the Soviet-Jewish immigration, Russian-Jewish issues, history...

Thanks for stopping by. I'm a freelance writer and editor based in Toronto. Born in St. Petersburg back when it was Leningrad, I immigrated at a very early age and was raised in Edmonton, Alberta. I mostly write on contemporary Russian-Jewish issues and culture. My work has appeared in the Walrus Magazine, the Forward, Tablet, Saveur and others. Find more here.

What I'm Up To

You can also find me scattered elsewhere on the interwebs - posting pictures on Instagram, opinionating in 140-character soundbites on Twitter, and sharing Russian-Jewy stuff on the Facebook.
