How would you explain to a 5-year old child what you do in life?
I am studying VFX to make some awesome stuff for movies. Basically, New York could not have been physically destroyed by Avengers so many times. Therefore, people hire professionals who develop computer models and create destruction.
What do people most often thank you for? What are you grateful for?
I have never really thought about it. First of all I am grateful to people for the good time spent together. After that you are charged with energy and emotions of others.
What inspires you most in other people?
Most of all I admire people who love what they do — whether it’s work or a hobby. You can talk endlessly with them, especially when their interests intersect with yours. Recently I was traveling from Moscow by BlaBlaCar — all the way I was talking with the driver about where it is better to go ride in winter.
What brings you genuine joy and happiness?
I’m obsessed with boards — a longboard, a snowboard, just recently I’ve tried a flyboard. I also want to learn surfing. My immediate goal is to finally go to the mountains this winter.
Music brings me happiness too. Recently I visited Alfa Future People Festival, and still impressed!
Describe yourself in three words.
Happy selfish person.
What is your day like?
Now I have some kind of vacation, so I am able to study VFX on my own and prepare for admission to ScreamSchool. I get up late, take a lot of walk and skate in the evenings. And I watch Soul Eater.
If you could recommend only one book, what book would that be?
I love «The Fountainhead» by Ayn Rand. It created the image of a man, as it should be. I advise you to read it.
What are you proud of?
Probably there is nothing I’m proud of. I live the way I want — maybe, that’s what I am proud of.
Is there something you’d like to do, but never have time for it?
I never had enough time. I was trying to combine cases and study, work and then my own projects. In the end, it turned out that I did not have any time for a sleep. Now, finally, I stopped chasing personal effectiveness. Life has become happier.
What is the best question you would ask yourself?
Are you happy? Do you live the way you want?
Please, continue the phrase: The future I want for me is…
…waiting for me. I do not know what it will be like, but I’m on my way and happy.
