I am a musician and a composer. Music is my passion. I don’t label myself as a classical, or flamenco, or any other style guitarist – my passion is music in general. Most of my original compositions are inspired by nature. And I choose to perform melodic songs. But I’ve performed and experimented with a wide variety of styles (from classical to jazz to rock to heavy metal to European to Middle Eastern music) and came up with my own – a blend of traditional Armenian, Russian, European and Eastern music with a touch of flamenco and jazz.
My greatest joy in life is creating and performing music that touches and enriches peoples lives. If I can add just a little light and happiness to this world, I feel that I have lived a life of meaning and significance. Throughout all my performances around the world, I’ve learned that giving is receiving, and I’ve dedicated my life to helping people through my music. Today I enjoy performing nationwide at retirement and assisted living homes, and I see what a difference that one-hour performance makes in people’s lives.
My other devotion and mission in life is to help fight cancer. Having seen a child go through the pain and agony of cancer, I know in my heart there must be a cure and I am dedicated to contributing in finding a cure. There is nothing more heartbreaking than seeing a child succumb to this enemy and not be able to experience the beauty and mystery of life.
