As a journalist, Dmitry Glukhovsky has worked for EuroNews, RT, among others. Glukhovsky has lived in Israel, Germany and France but currently lives in Moscow.
Dmitry Glukhovsky was born and raised in Moscow to an intelligentsia family. He graduated from a school in Arbat District and, having already decided to become a writer, conceived the idea for Metro 2033 at the age of 15. At the age of 17, he left Russia to study in Israel and lived there for four and a half years. While living in Israel he learned Hebrew, and earned a university degree in Journalism and International Relations at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He completed this degree in Hebrew, no differently to native-language Israeli students most of whom were five years older than him. While talking about the experience, he said: "I have become a fan of Israel after living there, not that I started feeling myself a Jew, but I definitely started feeling an Israeli."
