I was a graphic designer, production artist and photographer at the editorial and production department at St. Louis Jewish Light. St. Louis Jewish Light is a media and publishing company in St. Louis and it celebrated 50th anniversary in 2013.

I designed the weekly newspaper "St. Louis Jewish Light" and St. Louis Jewish Light four quarterly magazines.


I was associate publisher, a graphic designer and an owner of national bi-monthly magazine "TRAVELHOST of Greater St. Louis". I designed and published the magazine.


As an international media photojournalist, I covered the Chernobyl Nuclear Catastrophe and Nuclear Radiation Effect, First Russian and Ukrainian presidents’ elections, Soviet Union Empire collapse, Interview with Michael Gorbachev and many other historic figures. I was a photojournalist in Moscow in 1990-1992 during historical changes of the Soviet Empire. I worked side by side with famous photojournalists from Time magazine, Newsweek magazine, Fortune magazine, and CNN.  I was a freelance photographer for German News Magazine Der Spiegel for five years and I provided media coverage of Chernobyl Catastrophe effect in Ukraine. People in St. Louis had an opportunity to see my photography at my photo expo "Remembering Chernobyl, 20 years Later" at Missouri History Museum on October 24, 2006.

I love travel and I visited 15 countries. I love to learn about different cultures and traditions.

I love photography because I can capture the moment that will never return, and capture the face that define the person. I love graphic design since I can create beauty. Images can record the history and change everything.
