Born in Beirut. Grew up in Los Angeles. Lived in Palo Alto, Oxford, Santa Monica, San Francisco and Boston since then. Living in NYC now. Armenian by descent.
I currently head up Android’s North America East Business Development for Apps in the Play Store. If you know great developers building apps, send them my way. Anyone including start-ups, media companies, e-commerce sites, agencies, venture capital firms and anyone else enabling the Android ecosystem.
Things that interest me are music, consumer internet businesses, disruption of old media with technology, travel, basketball, sushi, video games, public and private market investing, restaurant discovery, politics, Stanford sports, fashion, snowboarding, technology start-ups and the Lakers.
Things that I don’t like include closed technology platforms, the Boston Celtics, avocado, acting “chill,” UC Berkley, mortgage-backed securities, peanut butter and piracy of content online.
