Biography

I was born in Russia but moved to Slovakia at the age of 9. I was never an academic type, and even though I had a brief spell of studying at a college in the UK, a combination of circumstances has thrusted me into a whirlwind of full-time jobs. During that time, I have committed to learning the skills I wanted to acquire on my own time, without the academic background. I have taught myself screenwriting when I moved to France for something of a sabbatical, from which I never really returned back to my old marketing jobs. After 4 years of being the cliché of a bohemian, I moved back to Slovakia to finally "graduate" into a more serious approach. I got a job at a small production company and went on to make commercials. I was also commissioned to adapt a book into a screenplay and with a young baby in my arms, I have directed my debut, which is now in postproduction. Making plans is for fools, and I have learned to be careful about what I wish for, so let's see where the year takes us.
