A freelance writer based in New York City and Yerevan, I primarily report on art, history, and current events in the Eastern Bloc. I completed my bachelor's degree at Columbia University, where I received the Dean's Prize for Creative Writing.


As a copywriter, I bring my love for words and design to branding and storytelling. From Fortune 500 companies to small startups, clients in the CPG, tech, education, beauty, and luxury lifestyle industries benefit from my editorial skill and commitment to building narratives that engage without sacrificing depth.


In my free time, I obsess over design, Soviet architecture, data ethics, and The Paris Review's Art of Nonfiction section.

Let’s create together.

Edward Hirsch: What do you think is the ultimate impulse to write?

James Salter: To write? Because all this is going to vanish. The only thing left will be the prose and poems, the books, what is written down. Man was very fortunate to have invented the book. Without it the past would completely vanish, and we would be left with nothing, we would be naked on earth.

The Paris Review; August, 1992.
