Sometimes, looking at my life, I feel like it’s been 10 different lives. I’ve been working in tourism, living abroad, been professional volleyball player, been a model, and even been working in a church.
Everything that happened in my life was a random chain of events that influenced directly to who I am today.
When I was 27 i decided that I want to be behind the bar and that’s how I I got to my first place - the Youth cafe. Situated in the very center of the city it is a brother of Moscow famous Delicatessen bar. In the period of less then a year from knowing nothing about the bar, even how to hold a shaker, I became a head bartender of the Youth. After a year working behind the bar, during the BATW 2016/17 competition, I opened with friends the first ever ghost bar in Moscow called Fellowship. I did that for 0 cents just getting all my friends involved in the process- the ones within the industry and ones not even connected to it. I did that to prove that the 7 handshakes-rule is not a myth and we are all connected. That event provided me with the victory in the BATW competition and took me abroad.
After the competition I was invited to Kazakhstan. Even though I was born in that country, I never considered it as my home. But I decided to accept that challenge, leave my beloved city of Moscow and try myself out going to Kazakhstan. I started my way there working in 1 bar, but in a short period of 3 months I was offered a position of bar manager of the biggest restaurant holding in Kazakhstan-ABR(it owns and operates more than 30 restaurants).
My mission and my goal is to introduce this country to the world, tell about its traditions, tastes, and the culture. To introduce the world to Kazakhstan and to introduce Kazakhstan to the world. I fell in love with this country and I’m sure you will do too.
