By profession I am a philosopher and a political scientist, I worked as an editor, worked in a network advertising agency, in PR. I’ve got a great deal of experience, different kinds of experience, different skills. I can work with a lot of information, build theoretical models, organize the communication within a team. All of this professional experience is helping me do the research at Strelka.

I came here because I am a Muscovite, I have lived here all my life and I can say that right now I don’t like this city. I would like to participate in the development of specific practical projects that can have a positive influence on the relationships between the citizens and the Moscow urban environment. Right now I am taking part in such a project in the Citizens as Customers studio.

Moscow for me is like this gray noise, strange randomness in the empty space. It is very diverse and at the same time it melts into something undistinguishable and not very pleasant.

I don’t know what I will be doing after Strelka. So far I read about microrayons till 4 in the morning, make notes for myself and the others and am completely focused on that. I don’t even have time to think about what to do next. But I think that it will be connected with what Strelka is doing and it will be very interesting. I hope it will be interesting and useful not only for me but also for the people living in this city.
