I was born in 1981 in Leningrad (Saint-Petersburg).
Finished Saint-Petersburg State University as a political scientist at 2004. While studying at the University had worked at a television, radiostation and a designing studio.
I came to Moscow to work on a social research company. Succeeded in it but felt that it is not mine way in life. And I started to search. I visited every interesting culture event in Moscow. And I met Pavel Ruminov at a film festival. That day I started to make photos thought never had done them before. And the next day I was on the set of his film "Dead Daughters".
From 2006 to 2009 I had been working as a photographer on different Russian films as a photographer, administrator and documentary cinematographist.
And in 2009 when Paul's film's ("Circumstances") post-production finished I felt I'm ready for my own film.
A had no work for money. So, I thought I have much free time and I should make it by my own without a budget. So, I did it with my friends and only 3 professional actors.
Now I work with Paul as his assistant at post-production of a film "Pyramid" and at his scenario "Maternal Instinct". I am shooting my second film "Boy and 4Spoon". I'm making a serial of mini-films about people which recovered from cancer. And I'm writing a book about a man who recovered from cancer.
