Bud's lifelong interest in Russian history, art and culture led him to A Foreign Affair in October 2001. By December of that year, he left American soil for the first time to achieve his life-long dream of visiting the historically significant Russian city of St. Petersburg. While training to fulfill his Sales and Marketing role with AFA, Bud met the most beautiful girl he'd ever seen, standing in line and waiting to enter his first A Foreign Affair Social. One year later they were engaged.
Viktoria ( AFA profile # 31110 ) and Bud were married at the Antique Wedding House in Mesa, AZ in March of 2004, and the officiate of the ceremony, a pastor of over 30 years, said Bud was the happiest groom he had ever met! Viktoria is nine years younger than Bud, and their family includes Viktoria's brilliant 9-year old son, Sergey. Today they happily await the arrival of a baby girl sometime in the spring of 2005!
