I am an American living in the small city of Luga, Russia in the Leningrad Oblast. I am married to Oksana, who was born in Tula, Russia and raised here in Luga. We have three children–Roman (19), Gabriel (11), and Marina Grace (5). I also have two grown sons by my first marriage, Russell and Joel, who live in America. I lived in St. Petersburg for almost three years (2005-2008), and then Oksana and I moved to America on April 15, 2008. We lived in America until June 2016 when we moved back to Russia. For most of my professional career I taught Koine Greek and New Testament in a university in my home state of South Carolina. I took early retirement just before we moved back to Russia, but I volunteer as the “English Consultant” at Erudite, a private English school in Luga. Oksana also teaches there.
