Can you tell us a little bit about your childhood and your start? Sure, I was born in Russia and I grew up there. I moved to the united states when I was 17 so I would say my formative years were spent in Russia as well as New York City and now I currently live in Los Angeles. Were you always an ambitious soul? I think ive always been imaginative and ambitious in that sense. But I don’t think, especially as a child, you always dream big. And I think the biggest that I dreamed was probably to become a musician which is exactly what I did when I moved to New York.
