Relocating to Russia

0 votes
I have a lifelong love of Russia, it's people, culture and language, and am at a point where I want to "reboot" my life and career there. I have been to the USSR/Russia three times, in 1975, 2008 and 2012. I am 59 years old and a US citizen. My background is in information technology and management, but I am by no means limiting my search to those areas. I would be perfectly happy doing any kind of work to support myself. My command of the Russian language is rusty, but during recent trips has been adequate  (one of my college majors was in the Russian language).

I am looking for a mentor / coach / friend to advise and assist me in the process of finding employment and housing in Russia. I have no particular preference for which area of Russia I end up in, but I do have a fondness for Siberia, natural and remote areas.

If you feel that you might be willing to assist me in this effort, please feel free to contact me at drhansenjr (at) gmail (dot) com.
