My passion and formal training in art and architecture began in Moscow, took me to London, and finally brought me to New York where I obtained a Bachelor of Architecture from Parsons School of Design in 2020. After the completion of my degree, I relocated to Los Angeles where I intend to continue my professional journey. 

Architecture enables me to see beyond the surfaces, look for a deeper meaning and explore all forms of visual language. I find it is the most immense and exciting science of all. I believe that surrounding design is what affects people the most. In my professional practice, I tend to develop meaningful concept and explore unconventional methodologies to create beautiful and functional architecture and interior that fully responds to the client's vision and need. 

My multicultural background, wide-ranging experience and different scale architectural projects made me certain that I want to accept the challenge: my main goal as an architect is to generate innovative solutions that will benefit all citizens to live, work, study and play. I strongly believe that human and planetary health must be placed at the center of every design decisions. This makes me passionate about discovering sustainable solutions and creating meaningful designs to impact people and the physical world around us to make it a better place.
