I was born to a family of two Soviet engineers and one curly haired boy. My mother had an incredible talent sewing and knitting our clothes while father was an amateur photographer who often would highjack our bathroom and convert it into a dark room.

I hold a BA degree in photojournalism and graphic design from Western Kentucky University and MA degree in visual communication/interactive multimedia from Ohio University.

I try not to label myself and explore various mediums of visual communication, applying what is the most appropriate for a given project. In the past I had an opportunity to work as a photo editor, graphic/web/page designer, web developer and a design instructor. I have a soft spot for photography, typography, illustrations and dark chocolate.
