Mariia Marchenko. Project manager // 2021 - 2022
Whenever there's a task to write a press release, prepare an artist bio or outline a content plan - that was my time to shine. I also helped with coordinating projects as well as finding new local tunes worth listening to. My big sphere of interest remained unchanged - music supervision, which could definitely become another nice export opportunity.
