Where are you from?
Crimea

Where did you last travel?
My wife and I recently visited Rome for our honeymoon. (Congrats to you both!)

What attracted you to Welcome?
I liked that Welcome is unique, with no other service like it. I also liked that it is a design-focused company and is small enough that I am able to work directly with the founders.

How long have you been at Welcome and what is your background?
I only started at the beginning of May so I am still learning but I came from working at Russia’s largest internet products company, Yandex, where I was the Ad Product Designer (similar to Google AdWords). I have a background in UI, UX, interface design, application design and other web design disciplines.

Do you have any tips for those visiting Moscow?
You must visit the center – walk around and enjoy the beautiful architecture, bridges, forests and views of the river. Watching the sunset in Moscow is also a must, especially if you have a prime spot on the river.
