Ah yes, quite a creative user name: my first name and the initials of my two fabulous long-ass last names (thanks Mom, thanks Dad). I was named after a Russian gymnast, but I have no Russian blood coursing through my veins. Although, I really like Tolstoy, does that count for anything? I was born in Montreal and subsequently lived my whole life moving from Montreal to small rural Quebec towns and then back again. Oh, I did live in Ontario for a while where I completed my degree in Drama at Queens University (a degree I have done absolutely nothing with since graduating), so I guess I lied when I said I’d always lived in Quebec.
