About Me


I want to go down in celluloid history, Mr. Shankly!


Born, raised and scarred in Moscow. Moved to Los Angeles after the uni, where I have been living and working/studying ever since. I love my Motherland deeply. I respect my "step-mother" America. But nothing can take a Russian soul out of me :)

Friendly, good conversationalist, intelligent, VERY awkward with maps (gps was invented solely for me!), topography is not my forte, and I do bump into things sometimes. (even though I am tiny).

I like to have fun and I like to be real. I don't do small talk.


My personal philosophy has always been "treat others the way you want to be treated yourself".
