I’m an immigrant, polyglot, naturalised American citizen, one-time London ex-pat with a wide variety of interest from gaming and comics to religion/history and drama/critical theory and from fantasy, middle grade to classic and gothic literature. I speak four languages (English, Arabic, Armenian, French). I come from a family history of genocide, persecution and diaspora on both sides of my family and am myself a war refugee. I am comfortable with a wide variety of accents given my Middle Eastern, Armenian, and South Asian background and upbringing. I’m a trained singer and actor as well as an academic (2 BAs, 2MAs, 1 MFA).
