Foreword

WARNING. The CV below was not updated for a while.
Please read a brief and fresh copy in the PDF.

 

Years of IT management in Russian and international companies have created an ambitious leader open for great new projects. Inspiration and deep faith in the Vision are the minimum requirements  for me to start anything. You can read the timeline of my career milestones at the bottom while I believe that skills matter most. Therefore, the ordering of this CV might seem a bit uncommon.

 

I am looking forward to receiving a Job Offer from an international IT company with an office or Headquarters in Israel. Though I am open for business trips, I plan to stay home in Israel in the near future.

I was fond of roller skating. In 2000 – 2001 I was considered among the best Russian rollers in side-surf exercises. In 2002 a very unpleasant car accident took me away from skating for several years. I still like both roller and ice skating as a hobby.
