Live from the stage/my workspace

Born to an Armenian-Lebanese Family, I received my BS in Landscape Design and Ecosystem Management in 2005 from the American University of Beirut (AUB) Lebanon, where I also pursued an MS in Urban Design in 2011. I earned an MsC in Design and Urban Ecologies (2016) from Parsons/The New School and in 2018 I received a graduate certification in Documentary Media  Studies at The New School. 

In 2008, I co-founded Atelier Hamra; a landscape architecture office in Beirut, Lebanon. I have taught and worked at AUB, EARTH University, Costa Rica and Parsons The New School for Design for over 10 years. I have worked as a research associate at the Healthy Materials Lab at Parsons, New York from 2015 to 2018. I also collaborate as an artist and a design strategist with Philadelphia Murals Arts Program on their restored spaces projects. 

I am passionate about singing, design, photography, film and media.
