On a Personal Note

Besides my professional aspirations, I am also passionate about art. My intention is to connect my creative talent and passion with my philanthropic aspirations. I organize art/charity events where I donate my art in exchange for donations to worthy non-profits, raising money while making people feel joy through my art. You can find my art at I live in Brooklyn, NY, with my husband and son. In addition to English, I am fluent in the Russian language.
