Incredibly reliable, dedicated, focused and intuitive. I feel comfortable on set and on location. I have a BA from the City College of New York, where I studied photography; speak English and Russian fluently; currently have a flexible schedule and a valid US passport. When assisting, I’m most focused on the photographer’s vision. I also just really love people, which makes me easy to work with.
