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.
I follow the news fairly closely and in the last few years I’ve also become quite fascinated with behavioral economics.
In my free time I enjoy hiking, trying new restaurants, running, and traveling.
I'm also a big fan of dogs. Meet Brady on the right :)
