About Me

Originally from Moscow, Russia, I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in May 2017 with B.A. in Economics and a Technology Entrepreneurship Certificate. Before that, I attended an international high school in Moscow and also spent some time in Boston, MA. My big passion is for growing organizations from the ground up, especially ones that have a meaningful impact on the world.

Professional Experience

Startups

Being an entrepreneurial spirit, I’ve always been excited about growing organizations. To-date, I’ve been a part of 5 different start-up organizations where I’ve learned to move fast and wear a variety of hats.

Growth Marketing & Sales

I’m deeply fascinated by the way that people make decisions and everything user acquisition. In my various roles, I’ve worked on social media marketing, event hosting, PR, SEO, email campaigns, partnerships, and closing deals.

Travel

My parents grew up in the Soviet Union, so from an early age they instilled in me a curiosity about the world and a love for travel. So far I’ve been fortunate enough to visit 32 countries on 5 continents.

Technology & Data

In today’s world, technology presents a unique opportunity to get a product in front of a large number of people quickly. The projects I’ve worked on have included e-commerce, meta-search, SaaS, and applying technology in creative ways. I’m also a big believer in making data-driven decisions.
