Welcome to my website

I am a Brooklyn-based finance professional, webmaster, and blogger

Background in private capital at top-tier institutions

I happily work at Chronograph - the premier portfolio monitoring software platform for private capital investors. In my previous role, I was an investor in an energy fund at The Carlyle Group. Before that, I was in investment banking at Lazard.

Webmaster with a proven track record of building sites from zero 

I have built several websites and brands from idea to launch - and beyond. My personal websites on Russian culture have helped millions around the globe. I manage all aspects of these sites, from technology implementation to content creation.
