Originally I was born in Russia, a small town south of Moscow called Stavropol. Two years later I was adopted and brought to a very small town in upstate NY. In such a small town and school I stood out, being interested in Art, Fashion, and being creative. Throughout high school I took every art class my school had to offer and played just about every sport too. Just before graduating I completed my Eagle Scout Award in Boy Scouts. My project consisted of redesigning, building and installing New "Welcome To Greenville" signs in the four corners of the town.
