My biggest passion is influencing people's everyday decisions on a large scale, especially in the cases where these decisions will greatly benefit them long-term. Wellness is by far my favorite of these areas.Here are some fun things not covered below:* Started programming when I was 9 on an 'Elektronika MK-61' calculator.* Grew up in Kiev, Ukraine, moved to U.S. when I was 13.* Took Daniel Kanheman's 'Psychology of Decision Making' class at Princeton, making me forever fall in love with psychology of decision-making.* I love books (Clay Christensen, Andy Grove, Yalom).
