I was born in Russia (Siberian region) in a city called Novokuznetsk.
The first ten years of my life I spent with my grandparents, they are my foundation in this life. After that I moved to my mother in Saint-Petersburg where we lived for another six years before moving to The Netherlands. During this period, I came in touch with acting via a theater school and I loved it.
In my first few years in The Netherlands I was severely limited by my language barrier, so acting was lying out of range for me at the time. During my first ten years here I focused on another passion of mine and graduated at “Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam” as a “Visual Effects Artist” and have worked in that industry for a couple of years. But there always was one thing that I just couldn`t get out of my mind: “Acting”.
During my study at faaam (Film Actors Academy and Mastercalsses) and after it, I had some great opportunities to play for a TV show, filming shorts, commercials and play in feature films such as “No Future”(2015) and “Meester Spion”(2016). Most recent work “TommyTeen18”(2017).
