Tamir Kapelian, the Russian globetrotter. No, not like the trick shot wonders of Harlem, but a well versed and quite unique soul traveler. Having originated in Moscow, Tamir moved to Montreal at the age of 8 where he added French, English and Hebrew to his repertoire. He is curious by nature and always follows his heart. This led him to explore uncharted territories in New York, LA and Vancouver where he picked up a few tricks of the trade.
Somewhere in between all of that Tamir met up with the Lofty Dreams family (a web series based in Brooklyn), where he played Pavel D, a crazy nudist molly dealer from Russia, with love ~
