Michael was born and raised in Moscow. He grew up in an art environment. His father was a famous costume designer for Moscow’s Vakhtangov State Academic Theatre and Stanislavsky Nemirovich -Danchenko musical theater. His older brother Joseph introduced him to the trade. At the age of 12, Michael was already familiar with the craft of jewelry design, learning from the influence of his older brother and later he was trained by a Russian master jeweler and apprentice of the legendary Fabergé, which instilled in Michael the craft of creating unique pieces.

Michael began his career in Moscow in 1970s. In 1988 he immigrates to United State with $100 in his pocket, 400 kilos of jewelry tools, and one dream where he continued to develop his own techniques and styles in creating unique jewelry.
