Question: What is your life philosophy?
You have to play a long time to be able to play like yourself (miles Davis said this). Keep playing.
Question: What is your hope for the future?
That I can keep learning, being inspired, growing, and challenging the status quo.
Question: What is your favorite thing about being Armenian?
Family and food are a critical stitch in the fabric of day to day life. I have come to realize how unique and special it is to gather frequently and eat good food to express collaboration and connectedness with those who you love
Question: How has the Armenian culture shaped / influenced you?
It has made me passionate about who I am and to stick up for the things I know are right, as trust is a foundation in my family. Armenians are very adaptable people, but they also hold onto many traditions that make them unique. That has influenced how I work, what I focus on, and my family life.
