I am a political strategist from Toronto, Canada. I studied philosophy and history, and wrote my MA thesis on the topic of freedom as opportunity sets. My areas of interest include political philosophy of classical liberalism and utilitarianism, development of liberal political systems around the world, and international relations.
I worked on numerous political campaigns on all levels of government, specializing on strategy, data analysis and communications. I have also been actively involved in non-profit organizations focused on human rights and democracy in Russia and former Soviet republics. The question of how to make liberal, democratic and free market systems function well in states that were subjected to decades of authoritarianism and planned economy was always of big interest to me.
For me, some of the most important and influential aspects of our daily life include government transparency and accountability, economic freedom, rule of law, freedom of speech, critical thought and education.
With these videos and essays, I work with Sabrina to encourage our readers to form independent and critical positions on a range of issues, whether they decide to agree with our points of view or want to dispute them with good arguments.
