In 1985, Grisha graduated from high school and enrolled at Yerevan State Medical Institute, on Dental Section. However, his studies were interrupted by his service in the Armenian Army. In 1988 Grisha was back to school to continue his studies. Grisha originally aspired to be a dentist, however, the young student also had musical aspirations, having been the product of childhood love of music and theater.
