About & Contact

I write The Next — a new independent newsletter about CEE investment and tech scenes. I'm also an analyst and communications lead at SID Venture Partners, where we invest in the most promising Ukrainian developers that build global things.

I spent two years at Forbes Ukraine in Kyiv, heading up technology reporting and leading a team of up to 4 people as Deputy Editor-in-Chief. I wrote cover stories, set up Midas List, Best Startups List, and contributed to the annual Richest List. It was challenging and informative.

Prior to Forbes I worked at AIN.UA and UIP.ME. There I've also covered the rise of the Ukrainian tech scene.

Now I write essays about things I’m trying to understand and a newsletter you can subscribe to.

You can see more on Twitter or LinkedIn or send me an email.
