All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once you grow up. - Pablo Picasso
Prior to joining the Wikimedia Foundation in July 2014, I worked as an ESL Teacher and then as a Marketing Coordinator at an agency specializing in marketing project for tech companies. Since I was majoring in English Language and Literature, I spent most of my time on Wikipedia researching different UK dialects, especially Cockney, since that was the topic of my thesis. I love reading English and Russian literature as well as playing sports and traveling.
I oversee the WMF Online store, create new products and develop different marketing efforts to promote the Wikimedia Shop.
