After high school he was accepted into the Leningrad State Institute of Theater, Music, and Cinematography. However, in his freshman year, he was drafted into the army. He served in Turkmenistan and in the military intelligence in Afghanistan. After completing his service, he returned to LGITMIK and graduated in 1989.
