I was born in Saint-Petersburg, the "cultural capital city of Russia. All my childhood, I dreamed of discoveries that I could make and traveling around the world. I graduated from St. Petersburg State University with a degree in comparative politics.

Education at the Faculty of Philosophy and Political Science Studies gave me a serious scientific basis and approach and opened my eyes to the variety of the phenomena of the modern world.

I worked a lot in the media—radio, television, news agencies, sociological studies, and cinema. I really enjoyed all of my projects.

But as soon as I got the opportunity to discover the world, going on a journey without a final point, I immediately rushed into this adventure.
