About

My name is Mikhail

Hello, folks, welcome to my website.

Who am I? What is my path?

I was born and grew up in Angarsk, Russia, the town in the Eastern Siberia, some 100 km away from Lake Baikal. Currently I reside in the Portland/Vancouver area.

My Education.

Currently, I am in a process of completing my Masters of Arts in Strategic Communications from WSU’s Edward R Murrow College of Communication Global Campus. This site exhibits projects of strategic and responsible advertising, public relations, corporate communication, crisis and communication management, executed by Mikhail. I have published selected works on the topics listed in the Portfolio Index page.

What do I do?

Currently I am a graphic designer at the prepress office of the Ricoh Print Services for Kroger/Fred Meyer Corporate headquarters in Portland OR. My goal is to expand my career deeper into the field of strategic communications.

Social marketing.

In 2010 I participated in a WSU Vancouver DTC Program classroom project to uplift digital communications for local homeless family shelter.

During 2012 and 2014 I was an investing partner in a project that employed US Veterans, their families and caregivers. As a technology officer, I worked to provide solutions for social media, web design, training and technology support. I participated in a company research for court reporting and litigation support industry technology.

In 2014 I volunteered as a graphic designer for annual report of the local non-profit mental health and substance treatment organization. In 2018 I made an attempt to create animal rights movement brand. I also generated a mock awareness campaign “Foster Washington” with the tagline “Not every family has a kid but every kid needs a family.” The goal of this mock campaign was to increase awareness in order to improve Foster Care system of the State of Washington.

Goals.

To achieve my goals, I set the bar for a larger substance and higher scope. My goal is to get involved with organization to increase the social good of the world from ethical and humane perspective.  I strive to contribute to progressive ideals, reduce poverty, violence, greed, racism and class warfare.

I am still discovering my path.  So, I welcome you to join my path, as I am looking forward to witnessing yours. In the end I hope we both achieve the full potential to increase the good in our society.

Last but not Least.

Aside from my professional development, I am a family man, I love to go hiking and camping, I love video art. One of my favorite artists is Bill Viola – his art is captivating, thought provoking and simply amazing.  I also enjoy working on house improvement projects, go to the movie premieres and hang out with friends.
