CEO & Co-founder of Buy Me a Pie. Also founder of Buffer Bay in charge for lifehacker.ru, macradar.ru & appradar.ru
Started first Internet project at the age of 16. Created first company called "Skript" (web development) at 21. Sold the majority share of the company to its biggest client to make a transition to product company. Worked on a number of successful and not unsuccessful web products.
In 2005 got interested in blogs. Started "Internet things" blog in Russian trying to use "web 2.0" boom. The project was selected as the Russian Blog of the Year by the "Ezhe" Society of Russian Internet Professionals. By the end of the year blog was sold to a Russian vc-fund, that wanted to employ it to support their future investments.
In 2009 founded Buffer Bay company to capitalize Russian content projects. Lifehacker.ru & Macradar.ru blogs were used as a basis. During 2012 the number of Lifehacker.ru visitors had a massive 86% growth. At the moment Lifehacker.ru has 70-80k daily unique visits.
Came up with the idea of creating iOS development department at Skript and became it's head. Shortly executed first iOS product in partnership with calend.ru, a famous Russian website about holidays with over 200k daily audience. The application is available in Russian only and named "Calendar of holidays".
In late 2010 was staying in the grocery store reading sms shopping list from wife and suddenly got concerned why so few people really use mobile shopping lists. The problem was the apps complexity due to the excessive number of features in them. Came up with the idea of a really simple, cloud based mobile grocery list that people would be eager to use. As a result by the fall 2012 the application called "Buy Me a Pie!" became the leading mobile grocery list in the App Store.
In early 2013, having more than 2M installs, Buy Me a Pie was reorganized into an independent company. The main goal is to become the leader of the mobile grocery list market while making the product that people love & recommend to their friends. "Buy Me a Pie!" is aimed at becoming a mobile grocery list for those who don't like mobile grocery lists.
