I've worked as a photojournalist since 2000, documenting everything from conflict zones to politics to celebrities to natural disasters. Over the years, my clients have included Time, Newsweek, NY Times, Boston Globe and numerous other magazines and newspapers in the U.S. and abroad. 

After a long period of living and working in Los Angeles, I moved to Yerevan, Armenia where I am currently based. In addition to my work with news and editorial publications, since moving to Armenia I have collaborated with several non-profit organizations documenting their work and causes. 

Alongside my work, I dedicate part of my time teaching photography at the American University of Armenia.

I have received numerous photography awards - including the World Press Photo 2003.
