Born in the Central part of Ukraine in a small town of Oleksandria. Went to school in Oleksandria and graduated at an industrial college in industrial electrical systems. From my early days I was sharply focused on preventing fatalities from happening in the working place. Participation in EoF at Anglo America was the most in-depth experience identifying potential causes for fatal and catastrophic accidents I will take to my teams, my family, and my friends.
