I started to learn music at the age of 7. I attended The Theory and Composition Faculty of the Novosibirsk Academy of Music in Russia. After moving to Israel, I went to The Sound School in Tel-Aviv. After college, I watched with interest the development of the music software and sound synthesis technology. In 2004 I was invited to take part in a project to create a simulation of playing a symphony orchestra - it was an amazing experience with all the best sample-based symphonic libraries.
