I was born in the former USSR in the city of Izhevsk in 1957.

In the period from 1980 to 1993, I conducted researches on the characteristics of special purpose munitions.

In 1988, I was awarded the degree of candidate of technical sciences on a specialty “Armament and military technology”.

In the period from 1993 to 2011, I held the position of chief designer of the company TECHCRIM, a well-known Russian developer and manufacturer of various kinds of weapons and cartridges.

Under my leadership and with my direct participation, many dozens of models of different types of weapons and cartridges for civilian use and law enforcement were developed and prepared for production. The individual types of cartridges developed by me had no analogs in Russian and international practice and were introduced as new calibers of cartridges in the C.I.P. Tables.

I am the author of more than 70 scientific works, including 40 inventions and 4 national standards.

I began writing in 2011; in Russia, I published professional books “Development of cartridges for smoothbore weapons” (2013), “Development of tear gas weapons” (2014), “Calibres of cartridges and weapons in the C.I.P. Tables” (2015), “Constructions of cartridges” (2017). The book “Constructions of cartridges” is translated into English and published on Amazon (2018).
