I am originally from Ukraine, but I have chosen to live and travel abroad, which I successfully do for seven years already.
After graduating with MD in English and German Philology, Translation and Literature, I started writing for the English-language newspaper based in Kiev (Kiev Post), in a section of lifestyle and entertainment.
I studied cinema and theatre for two years, which allowed me to work as a cinema critic, as well.
When I moved out of Ukraine, I started writing for a number of travel magazines, which I still keep doing.
I am passionate about languages, so thanks to my knowledge of Ukrainian, Russian, English, and Italian among others, I can conduct a research in some of the most interesting regions without a help of a translator.
