I'd rather regret the things I've done, than those I didn't.
I'm Russian, born in Lithuania, grew up in Belarus - I think of myself as a nomad. I was fortunate enough to work internationally early in life, and the subsequent jobs took me to Moscow, then Rotterdam, and now I live in Sydney and love it.
When I travel, I try to leave my preconceived notions behind and just embrace different ways of living and whatever comes my way - and I am usually all the happier for it!
I believe in sustainable living, equal rights and that internet was the best thing that happened to my generation.
Travelling, eating out, photography, music and musings about life is how I fill my free time. As well as reading on new media, technology, design and global affairs. I love TED. And cannot live without my morning coffee.
I love my work, too. I am a marketing manager Australia & New Zealand for Getty Images, and I love it (really). Marketing can make wonderful things happen, but with great power comes great responsibility. Let's stay ethical.
