Raffi Kojian is the creator and webmaster of Armeniapedia.org and Cilicia.com. Born in Ethiopia, his family moved to the USA when he was young. He grew up in Orange County, California, and after a couple of stays in Armenia, moved there in 1999, where he resides today. Hobbies/interess include gardening, reading, "remonding", cafes, and the ever-challenging in a land-locked country beach visit. He has strong libertarian tendencies.

AASCI Signature

In the early 1990's Raffi often used the following aasci art at the end of his messages. At the time it was used in a book about the internet as an example of ASCII art. (Yes, Ararat is shown from the Western Armenia perspective)
