Design is always been my life and my passion. i am a native Russian, I graduated from Saint Petersburg University in 1993 with a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering and industrial design. I migrated to the U.S. to advance my education in interior design at West Valley College, California , earning ASID certification. In 2002, I received acknowledgment from CNN for my award–winning proposal and plans for the new Twin Towers in New York City and in 2003, I received an International Furnishings and Design Association award in the Universal Home Design Competition in San Francisco, Calif. I have been honored for my 3-D model design for the Jewish Community Center in Los Gatos, Calif. (2004), that helped secure funding for the building, and got 2d place in the City of Milpitas beautification project (2005).

I directed all creative and sales operations, including completion of product design, decal design, packaging, pricing strategy, trade-show preparation, and distribution through retail vendors (Harley-Davidson, Arlen Ness, etc.), biker clubs, trade shows, and online store.
