About me

I am a music, dance, and a communication junkie, that has graduated with a BA degree in Performance Design and Practice at Central Saint Martins. You can spot me jumping from one techno club, to a salsa bar, chatting people up, and buying everybody drinks. If not, I will probably be in a dark corner having a philosophical and political discussion on how we can change the world. I have had experience in Set and Costume design for theatre, TV and dance, as well as studio and marketing assistant for a founder and a director of a Fashion Company PRITCH London. As a Set Designer I have collaborated with Drama Centre London actors and directors, as well as choreographers and dancers at Central School of Ballet in London. I am a multilingual and charismatic human being. I am fluent in Russian, Polish and English. Please check out my website. <3
