Hey there!

I'm a bilingual Russian - American Product Designer based in Los Angeles, CA.
I love product design because it allows me to help people and bring them joy. Before my product design career I worked as a producer and editor in the film industry in New York and Moscow.
In my free time I surf, do yoga or go on adventures with my big fluffy husky dog Masha.
