Hi there. This page will summarize me in a few words. 50-something important things about me you should know if you want to. Things on the right are my projects and blog posts.
I grew up listening to the Beatles.
I consider words as important as deeds, if not more important.
I have worked on a tv-series set, in a major advertising agency, and in graphic design.
I like Van Gogh and the post-impressionists the most.
I was born in Moscow in August of 1985.
I can be contacted by all means.
I speak English, Russian and French, I can blind-type in Russian and English but not French.
I design and manufacture clothing by the brand of Volga Verdi.
I am working on an internet startup called Mine together with 2 friends.
I try to do things that are valuable from 20 years' perspective.
I want to aquire a collection of cars, including Lancia Delta Integrale, Aston Martin Lagonda, De Tomaso Mangusta, Ferrari 412, Alfa Romeo 6c 2500 Freccia D'oro, Jag XJ12C, Monteverdi 375/4, Lambo Countach, Dodge Viper mk.1 and a few others. Oh and a testarossa for sure!!
I do design-related freelance things on the net to afford gas and food.
I’m trying to philosophize a theory that would seamlessly combine physics and logic. I don’t have a single person to talk to about my ideas and it sucks. So I wish I had some friends with PhD in quantum physics.
I liked to play Lego when I was a kid and I was sure I would do so all my life.
I think one needs to limit their exposure to beauty in order to be able to enjoy it.
I have no idea about life, but it helps to realize that nobody does. Although people who have gone through war, marriage and fatherhood do know a tiny bet better.
I spend too much time in front of the computer.
I fancy old motorcycles (30-50s) but I’ve never had one.
I make about 10 times less money that I’d like to.
I love coffee and fresh bread and can’t stand milk.
I wish people were more open and trusted each other more. I want to able to talk to a person on the street without hesitation and know they're my friend and ally.
I am irritated by few things: people being irritated by things, people blindly convinced about something. First is a sign of emotional/psychological issues, second – intelligence issues.
I think the beauty is about harmony plus character. Harmony gives structure and balance, character gives uniqueness and differentiates.
I ride biketrials for about 8 years and I still love it. I love bicycles in general.
I like absurd humor.
I have nothing to hide, I think people overly concerned with their privacy are shady.
I have too many ideas and too little time or energy. I wish I have met people with who we could accomplish all this.
I don’t believe in God, but I don’t say that because it’s misunderstood. Some people choose to call what they don’t understand “God”. I choose to call it “things we don’t understand”. Yet.
I live in San Francisco, California.
I am a visually-driven person. I can get high or super-aroused just looking at abstract images.
I have a blog on Tumblr where I post the strongest images I find. If you feel the same – let me know, we might be visual-twins.
I don’t have a good photo of me, but here’s a random one.
I hate doing things poorly, and I’m perfectionistic about quality. This particular detail does not allow me to accomplish things. I just lose interest because I can’t get it to be perfect.
I love astronomy. Thinking about the stars gives you a feeling of complete freedom from our Earthly-little-problems.
I play Texas hold’em since 8th year in school. Not that I’m that good at it.
My grandfather was a geographer and radio-gunner in the red army air force. My other grandfather was one of the best children’s illustrators in Russia. The best actually.
I don't think I'll ever work for a company. Unless it's small and run by a person who's vision is same as mine and I will have tremendous respect for him.
I think anything is possible. Anyone who questions this arrogantly claims to know the future, which has nothing to do with what we know, I.e. the past.
I believe that all the people can live in peace and it’s the ultimate goal of the world.
I think learning to talk and finding the ways to find the common values is the way to achieve the latter.
I want to do interior design, architecture, script, direct and edit movies, act, do digital and motion interactive design, do flash mobs, video-art, and industrial design.
I hate everything that’s popular but I have an iPhone because it works the best.
I like Amsterdam and New York.
I have never been in a fight in my life.
I like shiny things, reflections, light and high contrasts. Oh and so much more.
I think politics is fucked up and the world needs my help.
I think internet will, no, Is changing the future and it’s obvious.
I don’t have an opinion on things I have too little information about. And I don’t think one should.
In life, I'm only interested in winning in the things that I don't know how to win. Sports, games: never interesting. People and money: always interesting.
I hate darkness, sleeping (going to bed to be exact) and hunger.
The more you're certain about something, the more limited is your world view. You're in danger of being considered stupid. But on the other hand, it gives you the ability to act. So, the recipe for sucess: be stupid in an area where you want to succeed. Knowing = past. Acting = future.
