I was born in Bishkek (Frunze), Kirghstan. In 1998 I left school # 66, which is situated in “Vostok-5” catchment area (block). My uncle bought me toy musical instruments which emitted different sounds. My first drum was also among them. Mum practised with me different musical compositions, and I saw haw my dad played the guitar and I studied with him. 1992 till 1997 I have been learning to ball dancing - and now I am a qualified instructor.

On December, 1996 I began playing the real drums for the first time in my life. I have mastered playing the guitar and keyboard, but I kept my interest to music and I played as amateur; though I tried to create rock-band at school.

In 1998 I attended the Academy of tourism. During study at Academy I sang in chorus. I played as a drummer in plenty number of groups and projects (about 25, there are some of them: «Halligany and РА», "Brother Fidel" and etc … Together with «Halligany and РА» we played brit-pop, ska and we were very popular among young people who loved rock music! Girls cried, and guys sang and danced in a ring and so we gave rise to excitement. We recorded songs which were rotated on radio. But there were also such fans who collected our records, including live-concert, not very good quality.

Since May, 2007 and up until now I am the group member. I had heard about “Ulytau” long before I became as a part of them; I was interested in mixture of styles and also use both national and classical instruments. One day there was a loud telephone call after it I got offer to participate in band “Ulytau”. I couldn’t believe my ears! I was shaken by this! Due to participation in “Ulytau” I met great rock musicians, such as Joy de Mayo and Eric Adams (Manowar), I read about them in magazines in my youth.
