Here is my story in a few words
The journey begins
I was born in Russia, in a relatively small town 'Kursk'. My parents worked as performing artists and travelled a lot while I was home with my sister Ailona and my grandparents.
When I was six years old my parents took me abroad with them! Over the years we have travelled across many countries including: Spain, France, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Netherlands and many more. While my parents worked: I was studying with my Russian books and trained to also become a performer one day.
When I was 13 years of age I started performing as a juggling acrobat. For over 7 years I travelled across the world and performed in different shows and theatres. I also did break dancing, attended photo-shoots, radio and tv promotions of our shows.
University of Salford
In 2008 we decided to settle down in Manchester which always felt like a second home to me. As I was no longer performing I decided to go to University and study Software Engineering
My love for music
All the way back In 2004 I have also started rapping. Now in 2010 I was recording music, making videos and participating in rap battles and other hip-hop events.
Industrial Placement Year
Between my second and final year at University I went to work for a full year with ODEON Cinemas Ltd as an Application Development Assistant. This was my first experience working in an IT related industry and I loved every minute of it.
I now graduated with a 1'st Class mark, which was a very proud time for me and my family.
Following my graduation I've joined Building-Blocks as a Junior Web Developer. My responsibilities include: providing work estimates and technical consultancy to clients, supporting and adding new features to existing web applications/enterprise-level websites.
I am now a Developer at CarFinance247. I'm working on in-house communication systems, KPI monitoring wall boards, providing data reports and compliance systems for the company management. I'm mostly working with: AngularJS, MVC.NET, SAP, HTML, CSS, SQL ... .
