Hello! My name is Elena Rabkina and I made this website so that it would be easier for me to explain to people what I do and not to lose any important project among the variety of activities.
13 years of playing intellectual games

I am a full-time freelancer with a power house of competences in different areas. Freelance-based jobs allowed me to choose projects following my heart, combine various tasks and as a result develop wide and deep in knowledge and expertises. When you follow your passion, you're ready to dedicate the most time and energy – and I believe that's the key to success.
Among my experiences is working for 14 years in the sphere of content and marketing, being a TEDx speaker and mentor for many social projects, organizing street art festival, shooting and exhibiting photo projects, creating larps and board games and even putting on a play. I'm closely working with social entrepreneurship, as well as build personal projects like Hedonist Club.
