Sergei grew up in a small village in the north of Russia beyond the Arctic Circle but fell in love with Antarctica after arriving for the first time in 2010. He first worked on the seventh continent accompanying and supporting tourist groups and their expeditions into the interior of the continent. He was also responsible for environmental and logistical operations in the deep field. Sergei took part in a month-long 4×4 expedition reaching the 83˚ South Field Depot to support an IL-76 fuel drop, driving a distance of over 3000km over the ice of Antarctica’s interior. He works with Antarctica21 since 2016.
