I was born in St Petersburg, Russia, grew up in Melbourne, Australia, and live in New York, America. In Melbourne, I wrote food reviews and had interviews published, and thought I’d become a freelance journalist; after I ran away from a career in finance. Then I arrived to New York where I stumbled upon HB Studio and started taking playwriting classed with Julie McKee.
I’ve had the opportunity to self-produce a number of short and one act plays, and meet film collaborates to develop a number of films. New York has been kind to me, but its artists kinder.
I’m currently perusing my MFA in Playwriting at Ohio University, under the tutelage of Charles Smith and Erik Ramsey.
