What I do


Product Marketing and User Research
Since 2012 I’ve been working with a number of startups and early stage software companies where helped taking products to markets worldwide. I'm interested in understanding why people use products, how their experience can be improved, and in working cross-functionally to build a strategic, customer-centric roadmap that meets business goals. This includes understanding consumer behavior and developing the product marketing strategy for tech startups. 


Community and Events Management
I’ve also helped to run a number of large tech conferences, hackathons, and meetups, including:  TEDxKyivStartup Addventure, StartupWeekend Kyiv, UTGemAngelHackMindTheProductSaastr Annual, Global Blockchain ForumSF Mobile Entrepreneurs MeetupProductTank meetups.


Writing
I’m writing for various blogs and publications, you can see a list of some of my articles here.


More than work 
I invest 1/3 of my time into volunteering, mentorship and helping to build and grow various communities. The best thing about growing professionally is the increased ability to give back. 🙏
I’m currently running ProductTank meetups and crafting Planet:tech newsletter dedicated to curating the latest in environmentally and socially conscious tech products and startups.

I’m also a ‘serial hobbyist.’  There are a million things I’m interested in, want to learn about, to try, to become better at. I’m into urban design, painting, typography, psychology.  I love hiking, traveling, and listening to podcasts while taking long walks in the city.
