I am a husband, father, son, brother, and friend. Born to Armenian parents in Baghdad, Iraq, my family lived in Beirut, Lebanon, and the San Francisco Bay Area in the United States where we moved when I was 10 years old.

Currently, I serve as the Regional Director in Greater Los Angeles, with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, where I help oversee our vision and strategy to reach students on 70 campuses in four counties. I have been with InterVarsity since 1998 and in that time, I have had the opportunity to help begin a new ministry to Latino Students at UC Davis, planted two new student ministries (at CSU Northridge and Pierce College), directed our ministry to Black Students, and led students on countless summer mission projects all over the world (India, China, Egypt, Los Angeles, and Turkey).

My family and I live in Northridge, California.
