Meet the Opera bloggers: Daria from Russia

Daria loves going to the theater, speaks five languages and has a quirky obsession for moose.

Follow her on the Opera News blog, where she shares productivity tips & tricks, and her learning from the web!

What is your superpower at Opera?

I wish I had a “Productivity boost” button that I could use on the busiest days. Or, replicate myself to have doubled capacity. Meanwhile, I guess the biggest power is the awesome team I work with. When we join forces, we get so much more done together.

On the personal side, I heard that I’m good at quickly explaining/teaching things. Hope so!

Tell us something about you that people don’t know.

I collect moose, from tiny ceramic figures to giant soft toys. I started in 2007, and at this point my collection has grown over 150 pieces. Once, I even took them out for a small exhibition in St. Petersburg. Before, this made it easy for my friends to get me a present. But, now it’s a challenge not to get a duplicate one.

When you are not at work, where can we find you?

I get away to my quiet, secret hiding place!

Before moving to Norway, I used to spend a lot of time at singing and acting classes. Here in Norway, I’m getting more and more into the outdoor spirit. So, the chances of finding me on short hikes in Oslo area get higher. 🙂
