After some period of travel, Ruslan trained as a teacher at a school in South London, before combining both of his career paths to work as a tutor to child actors. This included working with young actors on BBC’s Outnumbered, ITV’s sitcom Benidorm and films such as Harry Potter 6, The Golden Compass and Defiance. Film tutoring involved travelling on location to a wide range of places, including Lithuania, Australia, Thailand, Spain and Wandsworth! Ruslan came to BISS Puxi seeking a more stable lifestyle and to continue his passion for film and media by teaching these subjects to young people.
Creative pursuits take up much of Ruslan's free time – writing, filming and editing short films, as well as enjoying theatre, cinema and live music. He enjoys football, though taking part in games is not longer as easy as in his younger days! Ruslan's family are musicians, but he missed out on the musical gene, although he is reasonably good on the spoons!
