ABOUT ME

The picture above sums up the person I am today. I am a guy who loves to venture out and capture all of nature’s beauty on my awesome mirrorless camera. This image was taken in the Altay mountains of Russia, a place I call home. I was born and raised in Siberia where I lived for 11 years. At age 11, I moved to Arizona and my whole world changed. It was an adventure of a lifetime and a hard challenge to overcome, but it made me who I am today. I love getting to know the world and overcoming life’s challenges to achieve my dreams.

I found my passion for design when I studied visual communication at Arizona State University. Becoming a graphic designer has changed me as a person. It has changed how I view the world and made me realize how important design is to every aspect of life. Design helped me become the creative individual I always hoped to be.
