Vasily Simon: Who he is, how he got here, and what he's doing now
Born in Russia in the decade of the sunsetting of the Soviet Union Vasily spent his formative years in creative environments. Surrounded by writers, artists, designers, programmers he was bound to be on the crossroads of creativity.
Vasily embodies the idealistic age of yore and the pragmatic fast-paced new era of rapidly developing technology. Naturally curious he connects the dots between tribal mysticism, applied phylosophy, wide-range frequency beats and graphical user interface.
Simon is his middle name. Turns out it's a name that is easier to pronounce and remember.
In terms of labels (or #hashtags): world traveler, digital nomad, copywriter, techie, designer, musician, rookie philosopher, mentor for those who are stuck.
After moving to the USA in 2002, I lived in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and Miami with short stints in a number of other US cities.
I began traveling more regularly in 2016, and spent some time in Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, Spain, Germany, The Netherlands, Poland, Thailand, Japan among others.
I made a lot of friends along the way and became deeply interested in cultures and languages I encountered.
I speak English, Russian, Spanish, and Portuguese.

2012-2017 I had a project called Synter dedicted to a house/techno + electro/trance blend of genres.
