Lev Shakhmundes was born in St. Petersburg, formerly Leningrad, the Soviet Union. He obtained a university degree in applied mathematics from the Leningrad State University and a Ph.D. in the automatic control theory from a research institute affiliated with the Leningrad Polytechnic Institute.

He worked for 17 years in Leningrad in engineering, scientific research and management positions, specializing in dynamics and economics.

Upon emigration to Canada, he worked for three years as a research assistant at the University of Toronto.   Then he was employed for 20 years as a team leader in information systems development at Union Gas in Southwestern Ontario. From time to time, he conducted special problem resolution projects in various business areas of the company.

A number of his publications (all listed on page CV), were printed in the issues of the Academy of Sciences of the U.S.S.R., some of which were translated into English in the U.S.A. Such are as follows.

The publications of note in his second life were a paper at the 1989 annual conference of the Pipeline Simulation Interest Group, El Paso, TX, U.S.A., and two books, namely, We Are Different (1999) and A Better Organization (2006, second print in 2008).
