Who am I?

Born into a family of doctors in Siberia, I moved to Toronto to study advertising. I graduated with honours, then studied branding in Florence. Now an Art Director at Leo Burnett, I have never stopped being a student.

I am a reliable, respectful person with great attention to detail. I host a book club of over 20 avid readers and spend my evenings immersed in nature, socializing with friends, and making new connections.

What do I do?

I translate creative ideas into a visual language, earning a place in people’s lives. I am an award-winning art director, and my work has been featured in some of the industry's leading publications.

I have worked with many Fortune 500, international companies as well as local businesses across a range of industries, creating media agnostic and 360, integrated advertising campaigns.

Why do I do it?

I find meaning in it. Solving a problem... answering the brief. Pursuing and finding that single best idea, solution and then sharing it with the whole world is what drives me. 

And there is always an idea behind an ad—that is why I love advertising. I love smart, strategic work that helps solve real-world problems. I also enjoy fun, lighthearted work that makes people smile.
