devising creative solutions
As an Armenian-American raised in Santa Barbara, California,
I grew up in a contrast between deep tradition and the seaside Californian lifestyle.
My experiences led me to value the power of culture, stories, and the natural world
in how it shapes our lives, which can be heard in my sound and seen in my work.
I collaborate with all types of people,
from musical artists and filmmakers to scientists and physicians,
to create and tell meaningful stories.
I privately studied classical piano for close to 2 decades
and crossed over into composing my own solo piano works.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Economics from UCLA.
I went on to earn a Certificate in Leadership and Management from
the UCLA Anderson School of Management, Executive Program.
