About Me

CURRENT MISSION

See the World and show Armenia to the World.

ABOUT ME
As a lot of people don't read the My Home section, I will have to write this here:
I only can host one person.
I don't take last minute requests.
Pls read my profile before sending your request
and don't send copy pasted requests.

I am an artist(painter) by profession, but don't paint much nowadays.
I worked in Ayia Napa, Cyprus as a bartender and I ran a few bars in Yerevan, DJ-ing and tending the bar as well.
Currently, I do the free walking tours in Yerevan. I organize an annual international art exhibition; ARvesT Expo and print Backpackers' Map of Yerevan once a year.

I travel a lot; I've been to 61 countries till now. I'm a light backpacker and travel mainly to cities, checking local culture, art, food, drinks, history, etc.

PHILOSOPHY

Be real, be yourself, live your life and TRAVEL as mush as you can!
