Hey there! I'm Vasily Krouglov — an artist, author and Altt.me founder
How I do make the world a better place
I've published a book You're The State on project and self-management, stress reduction, ways to live a more fulfilling and happy life, and achieving goals.
I am the founder of Altt.me, an anti-censorship SaaS. We launched in 2018 in response to government censorship, following attempts by Russian officials to block Telegram. Since then, our project has helped over 2 million people avoid internet censorship.
I'm a contemporary artist known as Colonel Royce.
