I am a digital entrepreneur from Europe living in Kyiv.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a soft spot for digital technologies. My first memories go back to the 90s. Google didn’t exist yet. People were surfing the web with a horrendously slow connection, and you couldn’t do as much as you can today. But I was already fascinated by the boulevard opened up in terms of communication, data sharing, and the creation of online communities.
I began working on my first projects in high school. Soon after, social media platforms appeared, letting me discover their possibilities, how to make the most of them.
I started a career as a digital marketer in 2009. The agency I worked for was one of the first to bet on social media. At that time, Facebook was barely a hundred million members, and brands were trying to figure out if it was all just a buzzword.
Two years later, I continued on my own, proposing consulting services to organizations, teaching in business schools and universities. I met great people and thrived in my field of expertise. Covering just about everything you can imagine in digital marketing and online influence for institutions and companies.
More recently, inspired by my experience in these fields as a freelancer, I launched two new entrepreneurial ventures to tackle well-known issues in the freelancing and outsourcing industries. I share my time between these projects and my consulting activities across different time zones.
Last but not least, I am developing a strong interest in initiatives that reinvent work in the digital age, and those that allow technology to be a tool for emancipation and not exploitation.
