Mark is a writer, polymath, inventor, engineer, translator, interpreter, photographer and a wearer of many other hats.
He was born in the former Soviet Union but now resides in Boston.
Mark follows the fine American tradition: a person moves to the US, learns the language, takes any job he can find, complains bitterly, but perseveres. Mark also writes and publishes flash fiction, so he knows how to express himself concisely, before the reader gets bored. He loves to travel so he can compare foreign countries to America and congratulate himself on the fine choice he made 42 years ago when he came here. He loves his family so he can get emotional support and an audience for complaints. Above all, he loves his readers, in sickness and in health.
