I was born in Russia in 1980. At an early age, I immigrated with my family to Israel. I studied at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem and specialized in illustrations at the Academy of Art and Design in Stuttgart, Germany. Since then, I've been living in Israel and Germany and working as a freelance illustrator worldwide.
