Who am I?
My Personal Profile
I am of an Armenian & Russian descent, born in a small town of Aktau, Kazakhstan.
When I was 11 my family moved to Prague, and I studied at an English speaking environment ever since. I am currently graduating in Strategic Leadership & Management with plans of becoming a Magister Juris in Civil & International Law.
From an early age I was keen on business and at 15 I launched my first website to help people promote their YouTube videos. Six months later, it was auctioned for seven thousand dollars. This led me to my journey in the world of business, and over those years I am honoured to have worked with companies like Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Gucci, Audi, Tropicana, and others.
My Professional Background
2014 October - Present
CEO & Founder
Vazex is a newly established email marketing service provider, founded in January 2015. It offers a web-based application that allows digital marketers, companies, or individuals to effortlessly deliver large volumes of emails, as well as managing mailing lists, subscribers, segments, etc.
From my personal experience, I always found emails to be an effective approach in any marketing campaign. However, it usually came down to choosing the right solution, which quite often lacked certain tools or was over-priced. As a result, I created my own system that is effective, affordable, and would satisfy my marketing needs, as well as others. As it was recently established, there is not much to be said from my perspective as the owner of this company. However, thus far it proved to be a promising project.
2013 June - 2014 October
*Project on hold
Bogarri is a UK based online retailer of luxury watches & jewellery, founded in the summer of 2013. Some of the brands offered on the website include Invicta, Tag Heuer, Bulova, D&G, Gucci, Dior, Baume & Mercier, Breil, Burberry, and others. Since October 2014 the business was put on hold.
This is one of my first retail & ecommerce businesses, in which I invested large portion of my time and finances over the course of 2013. This business gave me tremendous experience in dealing with B2B distributors, drop-shipping and logistics companies. However, due to personal and financial reasons, I was unable to support this business on my own. I postponed the project until the right opportunity comes.
2009 June - Present
2015 September - 2016 December
STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT & LEADERSHIP
MASTERS IN STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP (EDSML)
I am currently completing an Extended Diploma in Strategic Management & Leadership (EDSML). Which is a level 7 Masters degree from Pearson Edexcel. This is an extensive and practical degree on managing and leading human resources, strategic HR planning, and innovative management practices. I hope to apply this knowledge as I work my way up to expanding my business to an international level.
2010 September - 2012 June
BUSINESS MANAGEMENT & FINANCE
GPA EQUIVALENT 4.0
HIGHER NATIONAL DIPLOMA (HND)
Thanks to my prior experience in IB and business practice, I did very well throughout the HND program. Most of the faculty members and lecturers knew me well and contributed significantly in my academic growth, which I am very thankful for. I have completed the HND program with all distinctions and was nominated for the academic achievement Above Award in 2012.
Soon after HND was over, I decided to take a few years off to work on my business, which greatly contributed to my experience in the real world.
2009 September - 2010 June
International Business (IB)
I dropped out of high school at 10th grade and instead applied in Prague College to study International Business. I was the youngest student in college, however it did not discourage me in any way. By the end of the year I was at the top of my class and one of the few students that successfully passed all of the LCCI exams. I then moved to the HND program at the age of 16.
2005 September - 2009 June
PRAGUE BRITISH SCHOOL
MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL
Since 2005 I attended the British International School of Prague (BISP) which then turned to Prague British School (PBS) in 2006. I came there with absolutely no knowledge of English, and I am thankful to the school and especially select teachers for their contribution in my education.
Although I did not live up to my potential at that time, I can state with certainty that those four years laid the foundation of my future.

Hobbies & Interests
I'm a very active person, whether it's hiking, swimming, rock-climbing or even skydiving, am ready for any challenge! Every day I wake up at 5am and start with yoga, stretching & a bit of kickboxing.
Although I have no experience in professional photography, I've always been fascinated by this art. One day I will put everything aside, get a professional camera and travel around the world :)
From an early age I could draw so well, everyone thought I would be an artist when I get older. Although I often neglect it, I still love drawing. Especially portraits, using pencils and charcoal.
I married marketing long ago, when I was 15 years old. I've spent countless hours learning all about it, and it was there for me in my worst and greatest moments. Today I use that valuable knowledge in every aspect of my business.
PhilosophyPhilosophy & Spirituality
I always find myself contemplating & wondering what the purpose of life is, what is the right way to live, and what awaits us beyond. I am deeply interested in spirituality, meditation and astronomy - which quite often coexists together.
I love to read at my spare time. Although I didn't share that opinion when I was younger, it is now one of my favourite activities. A few of my favourites include 'The Count of Monte Cristo', 'The Godfather', 'Sherlock Holmes series', 'The Alchemist' & 'Pride and Prejudice'.
I am generally a tech-savvy person, especially when it comes to computing. I know the basis of web coding, design, programming, server management, and of course all the gadgets and tools we use on a daily basis.
Just like you - I also love travelling.
As I mentioned earlier, one of my dreams is to just put everything aside, get a pro camera and travel the globe :) Right now my plan is to live in Barcelona, then Paris.
Like most of us, I don't think I can go through the day without listening to music. One of my life goals is to learn to play on a violin :)
