I was born in and adopted from the Vladimir oblast in western Russia at the age of five months. I grew up in the Denver, Colorado area enjoying such activities as snowboarding, 4x4 off-roading, and running.
I graduated from Oklahoma State University in December 2021 with two degrees: a Bachelor of Architecture (BArch) and a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering (BArcE). I was inspired to tailor my education around the designed environment after visiting Walt Disney World multiple times throughout my teens.
Since graduating, I have working as a Construction Management Intern for Walt Disney Imagineering. Every day has been a unique learning experience and has left me with a dire want for more! Themed entertainment construction is a wonderful and complex world that I thoroughly enjoy being a part of!
Outside of work, I enjoy playing bass guitar, listening to music, and reading a page-turner on the porch if the weather permits.
