A Baton Rouge native and proud LSU supporter, Armand always shows his Louisiana spirit – especially around Mardi Gras, when he orders king cakes to share with his colleagues. Armand earned a bachelor’s degree in international relations and Russian from the University of Southern California, and a master’s degree in journalism from the University of California at Berkeley. In addition to Russian, he speaks Spanish and some Arabic and Farsi. An avid cook, he often ponders whether any given recipe can be made with duck instead.
Armand will start in his new role Feb. 24. Please join us in congratulating him.
