About me

 

I’m an ambitious and hard-working individual with a strong variety of work experience in the media industry. Throughout my education and work experience, I have gained a strong set of transferable skills by being consistently interested in everything and keen to learn new things. I am a passionate, creative and positive person, happy to work individually as well as within a big or small team. For over four years I have been in charge of the blog www.wardrobeunderconstruction.com, in which I reflect my love of fashion, art and writing. Having this blog makes me want to thrive in social media, which I thoroughly enjoy and use as a communication and creative tool. As well as my blog I have done freelance fashion and lifestyle writing for LUXURE magazine, bilingual Russian magazine VV and the website Geeks Unleashed (www.geeksunleashed.me). My love for writing and fashion are in touch with every area of interest to me, since I like to share and discover artists, exciting places to eat and off-the-radar events in the city. I especially enjoy photography, independent cinema, contemporary and classical art, music, dancing and reading online and print publications.
