I did a keynote speach at the computer graphics conference "CG Event 2015" in Moscow.
I shared my life story about how I got to DreamWorks. Talked about me getting started in the CG industry, moving to New York and styuding at NYU, looking for job and how we make movies at DreamWorks Animation.
The crowd was supper nice and I could not resist to give few gifts at the end of the talk. Thanks everyone who came to listen to me.
I am very exited to start working on Kung Fu Panda 3. Kung Fu Panda series has always been of my favorite and is one of the reasons I joined dreamworks. When I jus joined DWA they were finishing Kung Fu Panda 2 and I did not get a chance to work on it. But now I can finaly show some Kung Fu myself :)
How To Train Your Dragon 2 took home the best animated feature film prize at the 2015 Golden Globes ceremony Sunday.
I am very proud to be a part of the crew. Congrats to Dean DeBlois (director), Bonnie Arnold (producer), Jeffrey Katzenberg (CEO of DWA), the whole crew of the film (over 400 people) and DreamWorks Animation studio.
I have been recruited for a super-secret mission and joining the forces of "Penguins of Madagascar". Will be helping our beloved top-secret spies (Skipper, Rico, Kowalski and Private) saving the world for the next 7 weeks. Catch the movie on Thanksgiving day.

But when one resourceful girl, Tip, manages to avoid capture, she finds herself the accidental accomplice of a banished Boov named Oh. The two fugitives realize there's a lot more at stake than intergalactic relations as they embark on the road trip of a lifetime.
I was interviewed by a Russian magazine "Snob" (snob.ru) about a movie "How to Train Your Dragon 2" and work at DreamWorks. I did not expect it to get so viral :).
Few news papers and online magazines in Kaliningrad, Russia reposted the interview making me look like a "Rock Star". Story about me was on a front page of one the most read news paper in Kaliningrad. And even there was a brief news on the Radio. :)
