I graduated Yerevan Engineering University in 1960 with the major in architecture. Until 1964 I was working in the Scientific Research Institute of Stones and Silicates, in the Department of Experimental Architectural Design. From 1964 I worked as a lead designer in the Armenian Branch of Scientific Research Institute of Industrial Design (VNIITE). In 1970 I became a Head of Department of Interior and Exterior Design. In the period from 1983 to 1985 I was working in the Governmental Department of Construction and Architecture in Syria on the project of Kasyun, a satellite city of Damascus, the capital of Syria. Upon return from Syria I continued to work in VNIITE.
