A brief description of your career history?

I like listening Ted Talks and reading the latest news about technology and start-up companies. 

What gets you out of bed on a Monday morning?

I have a rule- do not miss Monday morning exercise because it sets the mood for a whole week ahead. So my morning F45 class starts at 6 am and my alarm rings at 5.30 am and, I am not a morning person! 

What do you see as the next big game changer within the Digital Media and Technology industry?

When you were a child, what did you want to be?

I wanted to be a vet because I love animals, but I learned quickly that I prefer working with people and completed my education in Psychology. 

What is your favourite quote?

You will never know, unless you try!

If you could invite 5 people to dinner who would they be?

Hmm can I invite 16 people instead, please? I would invite my most loving crazy Russian family of course, along with Tony Robbins, Sheryl Sandberg and Steve Jobs =).
