Welcome in my blog!


Me in 10 seconds

Studied Intercultural Education and Migration in University of Oldenburg (2000-2007). Before that, in Russia I studied German and English philology at the Herzen University St.Petersburg (1997-1999). In 1999 I moved to Germany. After German graduation I decided to live in Berlin for a while. In 2008 I registered my first business Ozago –  a consulting service for young people who intend to study in Germany.


Occupations: since 2008 I work in my own migration agency. I’m also author and  translator

What am I doing now? See my “now” page and My Service page.


What can I do for you: I will support your relocation to Germany, help you to find a job, register freelance business in Germany. Feel free to contact me anytime.
