About The Author
Hi, I’m an American expat living and working in Kyiv, Ukraine. I created this website to capture my experiences in Kyiv and to share my sentiments on Ukrainian life. It’s not hyperbole to say that living abroad has fundamentally changed me. I’ve met some of the most interesting people, adapted to a new culture, and visited places that have changed my way of thinking. I’m so grateful to have had these experiences and genuinely just wanted to share them.
