I was born in Russia, Samara City and graduated from Samara State Technical University.

I have a Master's degree in engineering and Bachelor's in computer science.

Since childhood I have always been interested in sports. For example at high school and university I was playing for the city's youth soccer team. Also I worked as assistant soccer coach at a professional FC called "Lokomotiv".

Very Excited To be working with ECSA and helping to develop the players.
