Vlad Gorenshteyn

Who are you?

First and foremost, I’m a storyteller — expressing narrative in different mediums: prose, art, music, film, digital, and event-making. I also have “people skills“.

So what exactly do you do?

I help clients tell their brand stories to consumers locally and around the world. I draw lines between the dots nobody else sees. I dream up and bring to life “ideas” big and small with compelling stories and experiences.

█ But how do you do this?

“This” is about courage, heart, gut, grit, imagination, a lot of elbow grease. Combine these things with an awesome team and you have yourself some magic — where ideas become reality.

Who do you work with?

I work with exciting products, brands, and at the end of the day…incredible humans!

What’s your favorite part of ‘the job’?

I create and translate creative ideas for pros who often speak completely different languages or don’t generally speak to each other at all. I lead creative, technical, marketing, and analytical experts to get the job done. I love the process of making something from nothing. I’m a maker at heart.

How long have you been at it?

Ever since I remember, but getting paid for it for well-over a decade.

What tools do you use?

Paper, #2 pencil, and the oxford comma. I ask “the right” questions and do a whole lot of listening. There is a reason why we have two ears and one mouth.

What irks you?

Not too many things, but I prefer to be surrounded with people whom are authentic. I also love people whom are smarter than me, self-aware, and life-learners in pursuit of becoming a better version of themselves.

EQ or IQ?

Almost always EQ over IQ. You can’t “learn” street-smarts and especially “common sense”! Besides, who likes to read manuals when putting together IKEA furniture?

Star Wars or Star Trek?

Yes, please.

Superpower of choice?

Time travel. Because in the future, you can get more super-powers 😉 However, I do keep having recurring dreams about being able to fly.

What do you do for fun?

Living. Failing. Learning. Laughing. DJing. Drumming. Making. Creating. Motorsporting. Yoga-ing. And I do all this in the company of special individuals.

What’s the next “big thing”?

I have a few ideas. Woo Woo comes to mind, but you’ll usually find me talking about it in the digiverse or IRL. Let’s chat!
