Las Vegas, NV
Your not so typical Armenian-American with a passion
for advertising and a crazy love of paper.
Being a creative makes me feel alive, challenged, triumphant, engaging, and purposeful. I go to bed with ideas and wake up with more ideas. It has become an extension of who I am. There is nothing I enjoy more than being in a room full of creatives and bouncing ideas back and forth to come up with amazing ads and designs. It's a lot like falling in love, except it lasts longer.
