I was born in 1960 in Istanbul. I attended the Armenian Esayan primary school and then I graduated the Austrian High School St. George in İstanbul.
After my short term studying periods at Yildiz and Bosphorus Universities I graduated from the tourism-business faculty of the University of Istanbul. Later I visited the guide-school of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and graduated as a professional tour guide. In this way I accomplished my goal to be a comprehensive educated tourism professional. Since 1983 I’m guiding in English, Greek, German, Armenian and Turkish through Turkey. During this time I guided for over than 25,000 guests. I married my wife in 1998 and we have 2 sons born in 2001 and in 2004. My particular hobbies are besides history and archaeology, music, collection of coins, handicraft, reading and movies. Furthermore as a guitar player and amateur composer I like to entertain the people and also I like to tell jokes and listen to some.
