Hi, I'm Sasha.
I'm a writer, currently living in California. Most of my recent writing is here, on my Substack. My most popular posts there are this one and this one. Additionally, I wrote a book about being bad at chess around the world. In a previous life, I was a journalist; here's one article I like from that time. The others I like less: I may or may not endorse any you happen to read.

work with writers, both as a coach and collaborator.

If you like my writing, perhaps you would be interested in my fancy writing course, or my free writing course.

I like perfumes: here is a database of perfume reviews I've written.
