I am a confident, laid back, intellectual Mediterranean guy.
My heritage is Italian/Armenian/Turkish.
I've been living in New Orleans and in the US for seven years.
I lived in Florence and Paris before I moved here.
I sing professionally and teach singing.
Feel free to ask anything you like, they say I'm quite fun to chat after a few drinks.
What I’m doing with my life:
Well, yes, I'm an opera singer. I have six tuxedos but three pairs of jeans in my wardrobe.
Music is in my family. My father was a celebrated musician in his time. My elder brother is a composer/orchestra director and a music professor in three different universities.
I never went to a normal school. I studied in different music conservatories in Europe and Asia since after primary school -that's about 12 years of music education. I always rode in the short bus... I've been singing professionally since 1998. I worked with many different companies/theaters overseas, toured Europe doing my big time passion. I had the privilege of working with very important people over these years. I love my life, if I was to born again, I'd do the same thing over and over and over...

I’m really good at:
I'm an all-or-nothing kinda guy. I'm really good at everything I like to do, if I am not good at something I lose interest quickly. I probably have more hobbies and interests than anyone you ever met. I just want to learn everything.
I take photographs and I have some published work.
I'm really good at cooking. Particularly Italian and authentic Mediterranean food.
I learn languages really fast. I'm fluent in 4 languages and can hold daily conversation in another 3. Currently I'm into teaching myself Korean over Google Translate. It works but slowly.
I play the latin percussion and used to dance Argentine Tango.
The first things people usually notice about me:
I often get compliments on my dark eyes, smile/lips and on the fragrance I wear.
I also always get that people feel really comfortable around me and that I am soothing. Whatever that means.
Favorite books, movies, music, and food:
Alchemist: Paolo Coelho. All times best book.
Bukowski, Nabokov, Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Chekov, Ann Rice, Hikmet, Khalil Gibran.
Love Italian food.
La Vita E' Bella, movie
Ferzan Özpetek, director
All kinds of music. Can't separate. Wait I can, no rap.
