                Timur Tatarintsev
                Editor of Arrivo
                Vanya is reliable and calm, like a Zen Buddhist or a samurai. When I write to him at two o'clock in the morning, I get a ready-made article in the morning. When I say that the article is like a piece of guano, he edit it. When I'm wrong, Vanya points out a mistake, and we are releasing good material.

                Founder of express post service Gtbx.ru
                I needed text on the main page of my website. The story of the company, what we do, our advantages, in general convincingly sell us to a potential buyer. Ivan did the task by 146%. A month later, when we launched the site, Ivan checked the work, wrote a whole page of comments and suggestions.

                Editor on topics like marketing
                It was a shame when he was taken to a position of editor of the blog in Aviasales, where I also applied. But Vanya could write for National Geographic, another level of quality. Every editor can make a post "6 methods to save in Taiwan" or something like that, and the content of the level of Ivan, not any.
                Ideas for cooperation
                I write about travel mostly, but take other similar topics too. I'm interested to meet charismatic persons, who have something interesting to tell.

                Always work for good results and not the number of characters in the articles. I appreciate punctual clients and sense of humor. I do not try to do more or better than others, it's more interesting to do not like everyone else.

                For work I use all Google services, Facebook and other social networks, Photoshop, websites and landing pages constructors.

                I speak English fluently, basic learn Italian and like to listen to Finnish language. Russian as my mother tongue.
