Biography

Lev Shvarts, 38, says he was born in a country which no longer exists, and is now a proud US citizen. He grew up in the Boston area, got a BS in Electrical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh. He went back to work in Massachusetts but decided to leave a perfectly good career in engineering to pursue dog mushing. He moved to Willow, Alaska in 2011. “I am now a self-employed contractor and operate a short-run manufacturing and light fabrication / machine shop. I’m coming back to the race I love with a young team, which will prove interesting. I’m married to my lovely and supportive wife Melissa, who puts up with more than she should.” His hobbies include tinkering, tools, and tattoos.
