I was born in Vladikavkaz, Russia - city where two cultures, Russian and Ossetian, and two religions, Islam and Christianity intertwine seamlessly with remarkable harmony. Later on I moved to St.Petersburg, Russia. It was only logical to keep bouncing. I live in Belchertown, Mass now.

I wanted to become a musician, but ended up being an illustrator. I like watching and drawing people. My attention is easily attracted by unexpectedly important details.

I’m not the best person to ask for advice since my capability for compassion is often overpowered by my warped sense of humor.

I drink tea and listen to audiobooks when I draw.
