About Me

I am a marketing and communications professional with 30 years of experience. I have created dozens of brands as the in-house creative guru while building companies in Russia since 1994. When the war started, I removed my family from Russia. A writer-for-life with at least 10 unfinished novels on five different computers, when COVID hit, I self-published two books on Amazon and have become an active political and life essayist on Medium.
