Thank you for taking interest in my work. I am an LA based actor working primary in TV, Film and Theatre. Feel free to look around my website and contact me if you would like to collaborate!
I was born on October 21, 1999 to actors Hovhannes John Babakhanyan and Mari Msryan. Having descended from five generations of actors, I knew I was destined to act. My career began as a child, in New York. There, I attended PS 253: Magnet School of Arts and Multicultural Humanities. In my first professional production, I portrayed Johnny(Lead) in My Heart is in the Highlands by William Saroyan. My family later moved to California where I attended Hoover High School: Magnet School of Performing and Visual Arts. There, I became an Honored Member of the International Thespian Society. In October of 2016 , I was invited back to New York to host the Annual AYT Concert in Carnegie Hall. After graduating, I was admitted to the University of Southern California, where I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree of Fine Arts: Acting for Stage, Screen and New Media.
