I’m Vitalik Demin. I’m a Product Manager. I help companies build elegant, cost effective and easy to use software products while maximizing their business value. 💪

I’m currently the chef product guy at theGossip.app. I’m incredibly grateful to be a part of this journey. 🙏 (see my short article about Gossip and a podcast episode I did on Deliver It Cast)

I am originally from Siberia, Russia where at one point I was making $100–150 a month. 🤑

I currently live in Minneapolis MN. That money from Siberia surely helped with the plane ticket. ✈️

I have two master’s degrees (MA Linguistics and MBA) but I don’t feel that masterful just yet. 👶

I wrote a few ebooks that you can find here. Felt really great to have one of them featured by Apple iBooks as a book of the day (that day a long time ago though 😂).

I love reading business and self-development books. Here are my all time favorite reads. 📚

I made a few video ads (to help a friend) that I’m really proud of. They will probably not qualify for a Super Bowl but, you know, that’s cool. 🙃

I have a podcast called Fat Protocols where Sarbjeet Johal and I discuss software applications that are either in the process of becoming a major platform or have a chance of becoming one. 🎙

This is my LinkedIn page where I occasionally complain to their CEO about bad UX design. 😉

A few years ago I switched to a 100% plant based diet and I have never felt better in my entire life. 🥦

I also gave up alcohol and caffeine and I am now a lot more relaxed and woke. Go figure. 🤣

I love engaging with my Product Management and Design community and other cool folks on Twitter. You can read some of my thoughts at the #vxthts hashtag. 😎

And last but not least — I love baking my own bread! 🥖
