About me

I’m a filmmaker who is passionate about creating high-impact documentary and commercial video projects. I also love filming cars!

With over 6 years in video production, I’ve gained experience in documentary, narrative, and commercial video projects. I’ve had the opportunity to work on larger professional sets as Director, DoP, 1st AC, Key Gaffer, Key Grip, and BTS Cinematographer. Through these experiences, I increased my understanding of set etiquette and its value in production. As well, I have an advanced understanding of post-production software like Premiere Pro, After Effects, Davinci Resolve, and Audition.

My most recent work revolves around automotive cinematography with the use of my custom-built car rig. These projects include the award-winning 2022 VW Atlas Cross Sport Commercial, 2021 Lexus NX300 F-Sport Commercial, and a documentary piece on drag racing culture.

Academic Background:

Born in Perm, Russia, I moved to Germany in 2016 to attend an international boarding school, UWC Robert Bosch College, in order to complete the IB Diploma Programme. There I developed a real passion for landscape and travel photography, while also gaining an interest in cinematography. After graduation from UWC, I moved to the US and completed a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Media Production in order to advance my abiitites in storytelling, video editing software, and the technical operation of professional film equipment.
