I work across multiple kinds of art media including product design, ceramics, painting, illustration, art photography, interactive computer software (virtual reality, visual FX, UX/UI).

I was born in Moscow, Russia to Armenian/Russian family of academic engineers. In 2009 I moved to South America and for 3 beautiful years I lived in Ecuador, relocated to the artful Los Angeles in 2012, and now I live in the always busy San Francisco Bay Area.
