Editor-in-Chief of Robb Report Russia

Russian Federation

ABOUT

From beginning of 90s I worked in the business journalism, holding different positions from a reporter to the chief editor of the daily business newspaper. Initially watches have been only my hobby. I started writing about haute horlogerie since 2000 and accredited at BASELWORLD since 2001. When the Robb Report magazine launched in Russia in 2004, I was invited as contributing watch editor. Business journalism was over after another financial crisis, and my hobby became main occupation.
A few words about the evolution of my views. When I was business journalist, I was sure that Nabucco is the project Trans-Caucasus gas pipeline, when I began to write about the watches I guessed that Nabucco is the name of the collection of one watch brand. Some years ago I arrived in Milan, saw a poster on the "La Scala" and the final truth was opened to me: Nabucco is an opera by Verdi! In that order, I swear.
