Fun Facts:  My dream is to travel the world, engage with the locals, experience the culture and food along the way. Even though I have snorkeled the Great Barrier Reef, paddled the Zambezi River on a canoe safari, climbed to the top of Chichen Itza, and journeyed through Bhutan, I feel there are still much more to see and do. You’ll frequently find me hiking, exploring different cuisines, or expressing myself creatively through painting and photography. I am also an art coach volunteer at CoachArt – working with medically ill students in creating transformative art. I would love to work on projects with a social impact. Meanwhile, I am exploring how to design for AR/MR/VR that would help better lives.

Fun facts: I launched a charity project with friends. It was a marketplace for homeless people; we wanted to give homeless in need easy and quick opportunity to earn money for essentials.
I am passionate about the preventive medicine and post-injury rehabilitation. I help people to be healthy through health education and lifestyle changing. As a former professional sportsman I had several injuries and as a startups founder, I’ve spent days and nights at the office which had an effect on my health. I definitely know how injuries and the wrong lifestyle can change your life. I’ve won this battle. That’s why I share my knowledge with people who are in the same situation.
I have a brown belt in Judo, have won more than 20 local competitions and received 3th place in the Moscow Championship. I’ve won more than 40 competitions in Ballroom Dance, finishing 4th place in the Russian National Championship. I’ve been a Ballroom Dance teacher for kids and elderly people.

Fun facts: I’ve done a lot of work in civic tech, including founding my own project where I led a small multidisciplinary team to build a web-based software platform in the social services space. I’m a bio nerd. In my spare time I cultivate plants, fungi, and microbial ferments (for food mostly). Naturally I like to spend a lot of time outside. I’m also trained as an illustrator and am working to get a new body of work online. I got into that partly through my love of comics.

Fun facts: I’m an avid Illustrator who often has a pen and pencil in hand. I’m a high adrenaline sports fan, from surfing to skateboarding, snowboarding, skydiving, rock climbing, hardcore hiking. Anything that gets my blood pumping. I love working for projects that empower people that are in need. I come from a humble family and wouldn’t be here without the help from strangers. I’m now in the position to be that stranger, and to take every extra project I can fit in my schedule.
