Dasha graduated from the Sorbonne University in Paris where she obtained a Master's degree in literature and art history. At present, she is a Ph.D. student specializing in 18th and 19th century painting and the history of public and private art collections. In the past few years, she has been working for the Christie's and Piasa auction houses and also at a number of contemporary galleries. Dasha was also a co-curator of exhibitions involving young contemporary artists. Dasha has different passions in life such as art, literature, jazz, opera, food and cinema but most of all she is passionate about Paris! She has traveled a lot in her life, notably in France, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Sicily, United Kingdom and Ireland. She lived one year in Dublin where she has a chance to be a Trinity College student. Her travels and her very active social life made her an open minded and curious person. As a Licensed Guide, she takes real pleasure in sharing with people her knowledge of the history of France, Parisian museums, historical monuments, and helping them discover the spirit of Paris, the city where she has been living for 16 years. Anatole's France quote reflects perfectly her credo: "With science and love we made the world" (Le livre de mon ami, 1885).
