Born in 1978 in a family of circus artists, at the age of 12 I was introduced into the craft of circus by my parents and, after two years of training, I had my first performance in a high wire act. Over the following four years I toured in South America (Peru, Venezuela, Colombia, Chile and Argentina), Netherlands and Japan with the Great Moscow Circus and the Russian Circus on Ice. I performed as a resident in the biggest contemporary circus in Moscow, Nikoulin`s Circus, with great success. At the same time, I was training as a hand balancer. Also, ever since I started performing, I have taken ballet classes and choreography lessons in Moscow. In 1996 I took part in the International Circus Festival "Cirque de Demain" in Paris, and was awarded with a special prize "Le Coeur du Festival". Also, during that time I worked as a choreographer, leading a ballet class for the young performers and students of our circus studio.

At the end of the same year my hand balancing act was complete and put into the current show. After two performances I was invited to take part in the First International Circus Festival in Moscow, which was the first event of that scale that the Russian Circus had hosted. After 4 shows and 40 of world’s best circus acts I was awarded with the bronze medal.
Since then I performed with the Bolshoi Russian Ballet in Germany, Russian Circus on Ice in France and toured Australia and New Zealand with Michael Edgley's Moscow Circus for nearly three years. In February 2000 I was invited by Swinburne University to join the team of trainers in their brand-new project, NICA (National Institute of Circus Arts), where I am working at present. Over the past three years I have performed at special events including the 2001 Victorian Paralympic Committee, the opening of Melbourne Museum, Australian Tourism Exchange, L’Oreal Awards at Her Majesty’s Theatre, The Regent Theatre, Sidney Myer Music Bowl and many more…
