After Maxim graduated from the faculty of linguistics and journalism of the Rostov Institute of National Economy in 2007 he in the beginning wrote materials for various glossy magazines and newspapers. However he decided to try hand at automotive journalism. In 2004 Maxim wrote his first survey for Autoarena magazine, and the things rolled on. Test-drives, surveys, analysis of automotive market and author’s reflections on cars.
From this point on Maxim continued to cooperate with the magazine, but at the same time he started to write materials for the regional representative office of “Moskovskiy Komsomolets” newspaper as well as for a number of Rostov-on-Don glossy magazines as a freelancer. Maxim’s materials on automotive issues were released in Banzai, Stolnik, Street Taxi, Infomobile, Za Rulem – Region, Autoline and other magazines.
Afterwards Maxim left the printed media and started to steer the Auto project of 161.ru. He speaks three languages and enjoys travelling. As a hobby Maxim collects scale models of Soviet era vehicles. Currently he has about 300 copies.
