A self-taught software developer, Gregory was originally trained as a Civil Engineering PhD in Moscow, Russia. Through dedication and non-stop studying, he was able to completely change the course of his career at 35 years old - a remarkable feat considering he had used the same pen since he was 22. Although Gregory prefers a romantic comedy starring Meg Ryan to Dr. Zhivago, Gregory - like many Russians - is a skilled piano and tennis player, and dabbles in ping-pong when the mood strikes. 

Above all, Gregory’s life is made complete by being a dad. While his two daughters would smile at this, most of his actual satisfaction comes from raising his two Pitbull children: Bella and Oscar. In the small gaps between work and life, he makes time to engage in his passion for photography, love of travel, and cooking the best steaks you've ever tasted.
