My name is Sashka and I’m a social entrepreneur and filmmaker. I studied philosophy at the University of McGill where I simultaneously started my career as a videographer and video editor.
I was born in Houston, Texas but raised in Moscow, Russia until the age of 14, at which point I moved to Canada for 7 years. In may of 2018 I moved to Armenia after being a volunteer there for 10 months, and in January of 2019 I co-founded Creopia, a social business creating visuals for good while connecting the arts and creativity with social change.
I have worked with brands including the Halo Trust, Birthright Armenia, and United World College, and has been featured on Civil Net, Public TV of Armenia, Repat Talks, Bell TV, and CBC Radio. Currently my greatest interest lies in trends of decentralization and the intersection of arts with social change.
