and literature. Starting from 1992 he has been working as a freelance

Ashot's works were first published when he was 19 years old. Since
then his literary works were published in various literary magazines
in Stepanakert, Yerevan, Moscow, etc.
One of the main subjects that he explores in his stories is war,
which is understandable — war in Karabakh affected all those
living there. Ashot himself was heavily injured.
He is married and has two children.
