About Sasha Sugar

Sasha works in ad tech. Her passion is traveling & people-watching (nothing creepy, please don’t report to the police). She is from the exotic Eastern European country Belarus (exotic not cause of palms & calibris, but because nobody knows what the hell Belarus is; it’s not Russia – deal with it!). Sasha graduated with M.S. in Media Management from The New School, backpacked across India & changed quite a few jobs here in U.S. Her favorite job was at a sex shop, cause she learned SO MUCH there.
