He worked in Moscow for five years, coordinating online marketing and advertisement campaigns, before emigrating to Sweden in 2006. He spent a decade working for international environmental non-profits, including Greenpeace, WWF and 350.org.
Back in 2009, he co-founded a social enterprise, Wake-Up Call, that works to inspire a new generation of young leaders working for a more sustainable, peaceful and equitable world.

Aside from his full-time job as an educator, Oleg enjoys exploring investment opportunities. He invests mainly in start-ups that create natural & organic mass-consumer products; in cryptocurrencies; and in small-scale crowd-funded solar energy projects in East Africa.
