Engineer and business owner, married to Iryna who was one of the first Russian-style Nail Artists in Europe. Her background as a Chemist and Biologist, and experience working for a government health laboratory, means that we are passionate about producing low allergy risk products, and helping NT to protect their health.
Because of Iryna, I've had the chance to travel to many countries where she has been invited to educate or judge competitions. It's been a real joy for both of us to meet so many Nail Techs, hear their experiences, see their work and gain many new friends.
For me, this shows that anything is possible in the nail industry, and that a great education and dedication are the keys to success.
We both follow the maxim of our dear friend Vicki Peters, that it is important to pay back. We share our knowledge through social media, writing articles for magazines, judging and sponsoring competitions.
It is always a pleasure to hear from NT and have the chance to give some advice.
My specialist subjects on Mastermind would be: Allergies and Prevention, and the EU Cosmetics Directive (still a geek at heart)
