I was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. I moved to Switzerland in 1993 and spent the next ten years studying, working, and ultimately graduating from Washington State University’s satellite campus in Brig, with a degree in hotel & restaurant management and casino administration. Once in the United States and before joining RMC, I worked for Hyatt Hotels in downtown Chicago. My wife and I have three daughters, and we reside in Texas. I enjoy playing volleyball, skiing, and traveling.
