Samuel L. Scheib

Samuel L. Scheib first ventured behind the Iron Curtain when he was posted as a Marine embassy guard in Budapest, followed by a posting in Minsk. In college he studied music, history, Russian and the humanities, and later studied composition at the St. Petersburg State Conservatory, under Sergei Slonemsky. He changed gears slightly when six weeks of using the Moscow Metro convinced him to earn a master's degree in urban and regional planning. He founded the web publication tripplanner.
