I come from Paris. From my mum, to be precise. Product of nature and science, I was born in the year of grace 1983 in a hospital in the 15th district of the city. I am Armenian, and I didn't speak French until the age of 5, since my parents did not want me to learn speaking the bad French they spoke and they said that I would learn it at school. Fortunately, school did its job right. So I quickly locked myself up in a world of books and stories to read and tell. I was this weird kid in school, the one who lives in his own world and feels more comfortable in fiction than in reality. I grew up and opened myself to the world, but I always keep that part of childhood and dreams.
I teach screenwriting in a film school in Paris and I write on the side, sometimes screenplays, sometimes articles on the internet.
I spend my days either at work, reading cool things, or talking to friends. And when I'm really bored, I make short films in stop motion with my stuffed animals and my Lego, or I masturbate.
Oh, and the normal stuff too, seeing friends, watching movies, drinking etc.
Rock n' Roll.
