many authors, Armen was not an early reader. He
can honestly say he didn’t voluntarily read a book until he finished The
Hobbit in sixth grade. He earned a
BS in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute,
where he was an Honorable-Mention All-American swimmer. As
a USAF officer he worked on ‘Area 51’ projects – he never saw a single
alien (dead or alive). He later earned an MBA
from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and spent more
than a decade in the high tech and biotech industries. His stories mix
elements of science and history with a healthy dose of fantasy.
When not writing he enjoys
swimming, reading, and the outdoors. He lives
in Pittsford, NY with his wife and three children.
