What music do you listen to when you work?
Depends on my mood, mostly classical music. It helps me to focus. But my playlist is full of different songs. Some of them are the type you are ashamed to show to others.
What’s the best thing about working at DeepStream?
Speed and support of others. It is always difficult to start at new place because there are a lot of things to learn and understand. DeepStream helps me to leave my fears of trying new things aside. And I LOVE IT! Nothing is better than being surrounded (even virtually) by professionals who are incredibly talented and smart. I can discuss anything with anyone if I struggle with any task. And it is amazing.
What are you currently reading or watching?
Getting back to Russian classics that I hated at school and starting Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov.
What’s your favourite place in Leeds?
Hyde park which is just next to my flat. On sunny days (which Leeds is lacking) I like to sit on the grass and enjoy the sun.
