I've started to play the guitar when I was 7 years old. I will be always thankful to my Grandmother - she took me to the Prokofiev's Music School (Vladivostok, Russia), where I passed all the entry tests, and started to learn music in Aleksandr Smirnov's class.

Since 9 years old I took part in many music contests and events.
There are:

1st place - City contest "Young Guitarist" (1999)
1st place - Regional contest "Young Guitarist" (1999)

1st place - City contest "Young Guitarist" (2001)
2nd place - Regional contest "Young Musicians" (2001)

1st place - Music School contest (2002)
3rd place - National contest "Russian Sunrise" (2002)

1st place - City contest "Young Guitarist" (2003)
3rd place - Regional contest "Young Musicians" (2003)

1st place - City contest "Young Guitarist" (2005)
1st place - Regional contest "Young Musicians" (2005)

Gran Prix - City contest "Young Guitarist" (2007)
1st place - Regional contest "Young Musicians" (2007)

Since I came to US in 2010 I didn't play the guitar for 6 years. After trying myself in several fields, I understood that music is the only way of my life that gives me love and freedom. In 2016 I started to play again, reminding myself all the techniques and pieces that I've played in the past. Now I do private lessons, perform in bars, and sometimes I play music on subway stations spreading my talent all over around.
