Born in the former USSR, I have been an Australian resident since 1980.
Qualified in both photography and videography, I worked as a camera assistant and then cameraman for the ABC for several years.
In 1994, I won the ACS award (Australian Cinematography Society) for a short film which was well received here and overseas.
Other creative workplaces I have been involved with include Atlab Australia, Animal Logic and FSM.
Adobe Photoshop and After Effects are my great passions in addition to being a semi-professional lead guitar player.
