Things I mastered after a decade working in advertising industry...

I spent the last 15 years building my career in advertising: working in international ad agencies and teaching at the best advertising schools. In this time I did projects for a few big-name brands and worked alongside some truly amazing people.

I embrace cultural diversity and teamwork, and while everyone else goes gaga about technological innovations, my greatest inspiration still comes from human insights.

I am always up for a nice challenge. The real one, that requires smart creative solutions – be it a product innovation, unexpected media placement, or upgrading their way of talking to the audience. 
Plus, they say, I write damn good headlines, but this is just a cherry on top of the cake.

On a personal level

Teacher, award panel judge, mother, wine snob and passionate collector of useless knowledge. I tend not to shy away from the roles with responsibility, partially because I am an angry optimist with a plan.

I never forget a face

Call me a creep, but once I saw a face - it stays in my memory forever. Can't say the same about names or dates though. 

Russian - yes. Vodka - no.

Despite of my nationality, I do not play balalaika, drink vodka, befriend bears, nor can i survive in below zero temperatures.  

Girl Power!

I have a daughter, so I am passionate about female empowerment projects. Sorry, boys, but not sorry. The future is female. End of story.
