In the late summer of 2007, Nadya Lev asked me if I’d blog for this new website she was putting together and I thought, “what the hey, this’ll be fun for a few months!” Next thing I knew, I’d fallen head over heels for the lively, communal, co-founded love letter that is Coilhouse. Five full years later, I still am. It was an honor and a joy to serve as the Magazine & Blog’s acting Editor in Chief from 2009 through 2012… and… beyond?
The future is wide open.
Partner, Co-Editor, Creator/Publisher
Being “publisher” meant keeping the magazine going: pulling it from our heads and hearts onto computer screens, to the printers, into stores, and in the hands of readers. Coming up with funding, bringing creative teams together, and trying to make sure that everyone involved came away feeling creatively fulfilled. It also meant writing, editing, photography, coding, business, art direction, and graphic design.
I’m excited to apply the lessons learned to something new – and currently unknown.
Moscow-born, LA-raised artist, writer, photographer and cosmonomad dedicated to proving life is as beautiful as we make it. Enchanted by Tarkovski in the womb, dipped in stardust at birth. Left Coilhouse in 2011. Current projects include The Secret Guide to Alternative Beijing – a video travel guide series giving insight into the alternative art, fashion and music culture in Beijing, and Alien Botany – an art series dedicated to beastly flora and antique botanical illustration. Likes adventures, learning and space-travel.
