I was born in Moscow, Russia, in 1972, moved to the United States in 1978, and mostly grew up in Texas and California.
My education was in history (mostly military history) and law.
As a day job, I'm the CEO of a small R&D company that develops advanced technology for power plants.
Science fiction and fantasy, in many forms, are a long-term hobby for me.
"Hegemony" is my second novel, but the first one I've seen fit to e-publish.
I currently live in California, with my wife and two children.
