He also believes that no task, whether it be technical or managerial, can get off the ground without a good joke.
Vasily currently resides in Bali, Indonesia, with his wife, son, and daughter. He is a devoted bird photographer and a passionate bibliophile who thinks that you can just buy books and promise yourself that you’ll read them.
