I was born on November 5, 1979 in Tbilisi, Georgia. My parents moved to Moscow, Russia in 1992 wen i was 13, so i'd say that i grew up here. I've always been curious and inventive which often lead to accidents like putting the whole place on fire. I graduated as software engineer though never worked as one. Instead i chose to self-educate in web design, started making money with those primary skills in 1999, which gave me my profession and speciality — designing User Experience.

In 2008 i went to British Higher School of Art and Design to make things clear and find out whether my knowledge and skills were up to the task or i lacked something important. That course helped me to eradicate my doubts, crystallise my speciality and move on with my career.

In 2013 i returned to BHSAD as a guest expert, helping my friend to tell his students more about User Experience and how it affects the real work.

In 2015 i've assembled a small team of professionals to work together on a projects of a larger scale.
