I'm Gagik, a Copenhagen-based developer at Realm by MongoDB. I like to work on projects that make people's lives easier. I also just like to make stuff for fun.

Previously, I was studying Computer Science and other cool things at Princeton University. Welcome to my personal space on the internet...


Here’s some of my work.

Old electronics with new tricks.

I converted an old Soviet radio into a smart speaker with custom software featuring music visualization, app control, and more.

Pranking thousands

In less than 5 hours, this fake ranking site got over 2500 Princeton students talking about it for weeks.

Creating a unified campus application system

I am leading Hoagie, the development club aiming to create an ecosystem of campus applications.

From Soviet Armenian prints to a constructivist font.

I designed a display font taking inspiration from Henrik Mnatsakanyan, one of the pioneers of Soviet Armenian typography.

Improving transport with the internet of things.

Helped bring the powers of the web and data visualization to smart traffic light managment at a Tel-Aviv-based startup NoTraffic.

A real-time online drawing environment

I developed a collaborative drawing canvas for everyone on campus to enjoy.
