I am a Russian-American writer and photographer working primarily in social documentary and personal narrative.

I love to do both of these things equally, but I also love to experiment with combining them in ways to create even more compelling stories, whether that be through photo books, short films, or other multimedia avenues. I aim to weave stories that show a different perspective while centering on shared experiences. Based in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, I have produced written and visual stories for news outlets, independent magazines, and art, cultural, and educational organizations. When I’m not working, I'm making music or hanging outside.
