About

My work experience, education and contacts. All here.

Intro

Born in Ekaterinburg, Russia, as a kid I spent much of my time drawing pictures and painting. At some point even went to a local animation studio and created my cartoon (It might be online somewhere). Who knew that after many years I’d come back to drawing but in a new way: moving pixels and designing digital products for business needs.

Design wasn’t on my radar when I attended universities in Moscow or New York. I wasn’t aware of it when I started working. But luckily the jobs I took led me to learn what was user experience design. Since 2020 I’ve been in full focus mode to master the skill of design. The greatest thing about design is it is everywhere. Any place you go - you see it.

So far my design journey has led me to cool places. I've learned a lot about web design and being in the "agency mode" at B2Broker. Later on, I was lucky to dive into the world of product design at Finoa where I've been building fintech products. My recent journey has been with Kevel where I'm currently designing user interfaces for ad platforms. I've been also working part-time as a design mentor with young designers which was a very insightful experience.
