Biography

Born in the Soviet Union, I now call Montreal, Canada, my home.

My journey into the world of gaming began at the tender age of 7 when I unwrapped my first console, the Famicom (NES in America). Those early gaming adventures, spent alongside my brother, fueled a lifelong passion for video games and a dream: to one day create them professionally.

Today, I proudly wear the title of a professional game developer, specializing in crafting breathtaking animations that captivate audiences. My initiation into the gaming industry dates back to 2008 when I embarked on my career as a QA tester at EA Mobile Montreal. It was a pivotal moment when I realized that I didn't want to merely test games; I aspired to be part of the creative process, shaping the worlds and stories players would experience. This led me to take a bold step forward, applying to and ultimately gaining admission to Centre NAD (National Animation and Design Center) in 2009.

From that point onwards, my journey has been a thrilling odyssey, marked by collaborations with both triple-A and indie developers on iconic brands such as FarCry, Assassin's Creed, Rainbow Six, and Bioshock, to name just a few. My craft revolves around cinematic and gameplay animations, world-building, designing breathtaking aesthetics, and infusing life into characters.

Beyond my work in game development, I share my passion and knowledge with the next generation of creators at NAD, where I teach 3D animation courses. Additionally, I nurture my creative side with photography, strength training and dance.
