Timon Potseluev, Art Director
About me: I like music (I’m a real old-school rocker), love my family and my work.
BIO: Ever since I could remember, I was dreamed of managing my own team and developing great websites. Then I was fortunate enough to meet Alex, and here I am, putting my skills to work.
Personal message: Life is too short for a bad job!
Albina Chernozhukova, Programmer
About me: I like cats. I spend my free time listening to music and reading science and historical fiction.
BIO: My initial education and work were completely different from what I am doing now. During all my years of working in the IT industry I have never regretted the change of profession. Now I love what I do, and do what I love!
Personal Message: If you have a good sense of humour, you can easily survive the absence of anything else.
Natalia Tikhonova, Commercial Photographer
About me: I am a curious person, I like to learn new things. Here in Canada, I’ve begun jogging, biking, camping, but not fishing yet :). My dream is to enjoy gardening, but it is just a dream because I don’t have time for it, since there is so much to do!
BIO: My career is commercial photography; I specialize in creating promotional pictures for catalogues, packaging, and websites. My experience in many kinds of advertising photography such as products, jewelry, food, interior, and fashion, helps me create unique styles for my clients’ businesses. I have been working with small businesses in Toronto for a number of years, because I find it delightful to see their growth.
Leon Khasminsky, Video Production Guru
About me: I enjoy my classic guitar, long rides on my motor bike, and scuba diving with sharks.
BIO: As a Professional Engineer P. Eng in Industrial and Manufacturing Systems by education, I found my passion in videography, or rather, in cinematography. Cinematographer is not just your average-Joe with a camera, but an artiste.
This presents the opportunity to embrace a challenge and execute my vision; from making the script to getting it on film, it requires me to adapt my creativity to the client’s desires and their budget.
Personal message: Before you dismiss your dreams, wait until they come true.
Colin Dunphy, Account Manager
About Me: Comedy, History, and Media are my favourite things. Check out my comedy videos and podcasts at www.cbkhalifax.com.
Bio: An extrovert with a backstory as long as your arm, I recently moved to Toronto from Halifax, Nova Scotia armed with a commerce degree from SMU and years of experience in both the public and private sectors. I love taking the road less travelled.
Personal Message: “It pays to be obvious, especially if you have a reputation for subtlety.”
Alex Rakhmilevitch, SEO Magician & Company CEO
About me: I like biking, fishing, and joking. My dream is to buy a yacht and sail for a year long trip around the world.
BIO: I was born in Russia, made a career in Israel and brought my knowledge to Canada in 2008. I worked with everything from small businesses to huge corporations; my last job before moving to Canada was being a web-master of the largest Israeli bank, called Hapoalim. I’ve been passionate about the Internet and online projects since 1999.
