I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia (Pennsylvania, USA). I was born on March 14, 1961 in Kiev, Ukraine (at that time a part of former USSR) where I spent major part of my life, received my education and left a lot of my friends behind. I immigrated with my family to the United States in September of 1992.
My occupation is software engineering. I designed many kinds of applications (device drivers, hardware controllers, scientific and business applications, web applications see my resume if you are interested in details ).
Painting and drawing are my hobbies. I began to draw when I was a kid, but as I grew up I lost my interest in it and switched my focus to music and technical sciences. In the spring of 1998 something inspirited me to draw. So it is my second beginning. My desire to paint and draw became stronger and in 2001-2002 I took some classes in the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. My primary and favorite media is oil and my biggest interests in painting are portraits and human figures.
