was born in Moscow (Russia) and moved to Seattle (Washington, USA) at a young age. Her upbringing by her musicologist mother, who progressed in her orchestral management career at the Seattle Symphony throughout her childhood, instilled in her a passion for classical music and an interest in the business side of the music industry.
She received her Bachelor of Music in Performing Arts Management from DePaul University in Chicago (Illinois, USA). During her studies and afterwards, she held multiple positions in marketing, operations and business development within various music and event presenting organisations, and moved to Berlin to simultaneously pursue her long-term dreams of working in artist management and improving her German, which she had studied in school and university. She has been a project manager at Karsten Witt Musik Management since November 2018 and enjoys developing the firm’s marketing strategies and online presence. She is a fluent English, Russian and German speaker and her hobbies include playing her cello, cooking, traveling and attending concerts of classical and other music.
