Gary Sheynkman

I am a first generation immigrant (to the US) from Kiev, Ukraine now serving as Director of Ad-Ventures for Carrot Creative. I am currently living in New York (Prague, Dubai, and Chicago before) and until April 2012 was serving as Director of Corporate Development for KIT digital (now and a Senior Associate at a Dubai-based Merchant Bank focusing on the new media industry (IPTV, Social, Mobile, etc); splitting my time between an office desk, a tray table, and most geeky tradeshow floors.

At night, I put on a costume and patrol the streets in search of villains. I happen know the layout of most major airports by heart.

I have no issue with trying something new and falling flat on my face knowing that I am that much better for having the experience. I love juice boxes, fine tequila, shisha, coffee, sneakers and have at least 1000 other vices.
