Playboy.com: Where did you grow up?
I was born in Ukraine and lived there for 14 years and then moved to Russia and lived there for five years. I have dual citizenship. I live in the States now and I’ve been here for five years; I love it. I’m so glad to be here because there’s a lot of freedom to make money, no matter if you come from a poor family or if you have an education there’s still a possibility to make money. In Russia it’s completely different. So that’s what I like about America the most; it’s the land of opportunity. Everyone has an opportunity to make something out of themselves.

Playboy.com: Do you have any other secret talents?
I went to art school; I know how to draw and paint. I haven’t done it for a while, but I’m pretty sure if I picked it up again it would click. I was always more into dance, but my parents took me to art school instead.

Playboy.com: What has been your biggest accomplishment in your life to date?
I met Hugh Hefner last weekend — I always wanted to meet him; it was a great experience. I went to Fun in the Sun this past Sunday and I got to meet him. It was slow, usually there are a lot of girls but there were only ten that day. I got to meet a lot of cool people. Hugh Hefner was quiet, polite and always smiling.
Playboy.com: Do you have a favorite Playmate?
Dasha Astafieva. She was a Ukrainian girl that posed in Playboy’s 55th Anniversary edition in January 2009. She was gorgeous. That’s what a Playmate should be; she was perfect.
Playboy.com: What’s the best dating advice you can give to our male readers?
Don’t try too hard. Don’t try to impress a girl from the get-go by telling her how much money you have, how many houses you’ve got. It’s kind of annoying. When it happens to me it feels like they’re trying to buy me. Be yourself; not everyone is impressed by money.
