Although I make a living mostly looking after ordinary travellers, my true value is in my ability to act as your eyes and years, hands and feet, and even an extension of your brain. Information searches and scouting beyond the obvious is where you can get the biggest bang for the buck from me. Some examples: locating scenery and personages for film makers, industry information, or even assistance to Russian bride seekers. Talk to me if you need an extension of yourself in this region.
Geography: Kandalaksha and area, Moscow of course, and Staritsa, Tver region, where I spent nearly 10 years. I still have active contacts in Moscow, Staritsa, and Ryazan, and my acquaintances are well-connected too. Ask about the area that interest you but my familiar territory is between Moscow and Murmansk.
I’d also like to mention web development. Web development has been at the core of my business from about 1996, and now, 17 years later, it occurred to me that I’m better equipped to provide all-around site support than many computer kids. In fact, I should probably make a separate page about site setup, development, and maintenance. Here >>
