I am from Armenia and live in Moscow, Russia. Currently, I work as the chief legal officer at the venture capital firm Sistema_VC focused on investing in emerging technology. Prior to joining Sistema VC, I worked at Freshfields, an international law firm.

Interacting with growing teams and businesses daily, I like to dedicate my time and attention to communicating with the community and sharing my expertise with young entrepreneurs as well as law students and practitioners in Armenia and Russia. Besides business activities, I support the freestyle wrestling team founded by my grandfather in our hometown Artashat, Armenia.

I value most freedom, respect and transparency, and predictability in decision-making.
