ALEX – PHOTO EDITING & TRANSLATION

Alex came from the small town in the middle of Russia called Perm. He decided to quit the «Theoretical and Practical Linguistics» program to pursue his dream to work in marketing and learn through experience. Some years later he realized that it was time to move on and learn some new things, so after 4 years of hard work Alex became a retoucher & print assistant in a local small typography company. Then 3 years after, he finally packed his bags and left mother Russia to embrace the capitalist life of Finland. While he begins a new adventure he’s staying sharp by helping us edit and translate the articles into Russian from past editorials and the ones to come.
