I was born in Russia and moved to America at a young age. I grew up as an athlete playing soccer, basketball and track for most of my childhood and teenage years. It wasn't until the beginning of high school that I was told I had a good eye though I was using my iPhone at the time. Not knowing anything about the industry of Photography I decided to attend New York Film Academy after I graduated HS to further my interest. While I was there I experimented for months before I had an idea of what I wanted to do. I moved all over the east coast and finally based myself in Denver as a working architectural photographer.
