Dima was born in Kiev, Ukraine and moved to Los Angeles at the age of nine. Dima attended the University of California Santa Barbara where he studied Global Studies and Economics. Post undergraduate studies, Dima ran a successful development company in the greater Los Angeles Area and going through his own trials and tribulations was given a second chance at life by coming to the Last House.
Having gone through the Last House Program, Dima joined us as our live-in house manager at Last House East. Dima’s leadership qualities and experience in the recovery community are just some of his many skillsets that allow him to constantly grow and keep giving back what was so freely given to him. Some of Dima’s interests include sports, architecture and linguistics.
