About Me

Welcome to my online home!

Each week, I write a newsletter called Wednesday Wisdom. It’s a collection of the most interesting things I learn.

This blog is meant to be my place to learn, share ideas, and build a consistent writing habit. I love tinkering and building spreadsheets for my own personal finances. I would love to help people in their 20’s and 30’s build systems to track their finances, hold themselves accountable, and help with early career/early life decision making.

I live in Chicago but was born in St. Petersburg, Russia. There’s an interesting story to how I got here.

I work as a Sr. Financial Analyst at SAP, where I’m responsible for the top-line revenue budget and forecast of SAP Fieldglass, a software providing a cloud-based Vendor Management System to manage services procurement and external workforce management programs.
