I was born on 7th January 1994 in a famous city - Odessa. I do not know how my life could have gone, if in 5 years my grandmother did not take me to the chess club. One day coming back home from a walk in park I came to group class of chess, where I first met chess pieces. My first coach was Trimbashevskij Igor, who taught me until I was 14. After I decided to leave chess fr some period, but still played it in internet on Finally I couldn't help playing classical chess and participate in tournaments. In June of 2010 I started to train with Vladimir Grabinsky.

My tournament successes:

  • Champion of Ukraine in age categories under 10 and under 16.  
  • Silver prize winner of European Youth Championship under-10 in 2004 (Turkey).
  • Champion of Ukraine in age categories under 20 in 2012.
