Trello: I have recently graduated from my Master's in Mechanical Engineering at Western Michigan University. My Master's thesis is A Virtual Reality Based Power Wheelchair Simulator, where I had also learn basics of electrical engineering and programming. Before coming to the U.S. I was working for the Ukrainian-Dutch engineering company as a Sales Assistant and besides reaching out potential customers I was also helping to develop media and funding plans for an underwater drone startup.

I am an active person and I like to walk a lot. In the U.S. I learned that it is not as easy as easy as I used to. Therefore, I am excited to join State of Place on the great mission to improve the walkability and comfort of the U.S. cities!

Fun Fact: I have 3 Master's degrees in different areas of mechanical engineering. In 2015 I was running my own small home bakery in Ukraine (I can make amazing cakes). I love cooking and recently learned how to brew beer.

Location: Kalamazoo, MI / Metro Detroit, MI
