Born in Russia, February, 1979. I emigrated to the US with my family in 1989. My artistic photographic expressions started early in life with a gift of a point and shoot camera at the age of 8. A veteran of the US NAVY, I was the ship’s official photographer where he record military life as we lived it. Since then, I have continued to photograph a wide variety of subjects. In the last few years I have also transitioned into mixed media paintings. My work is represented in a number of galleries and publications.
