Arman Ayva

business analyst, marketing expert, photographer, blogger


My name is Arman, I am from Montreal.

I am a professional business analyst working at the bank. But I am also serious hobbyist photographer, designer and web developer and a social network expert.

I have an experience in banking started from 2000: I started as a commercial loan officer in front office and reached to Sr. Manager for  “New product development and Marketing” division in Anleik Bank from 2000 to 2008.  I started with BMO as a  reconciliation officer in Investments Services and reached to today’s position of  Sr. Business Analyst in Procurement from 2009 to 2016. My motivation is my  nature of being  curious, self-aware(ambitious)  and creative. My driver is my loyalty to my family, my friends, my colleagues, my company. 

- Experience of loan officer , reconciliation officer, business analyst, manager, subject matter expert, project lead, technical support, resolution expert capable to investigate and resolve complex non-routine issues 
- me as person ambitious, honest, curious, reliable, autonomous, disciplined, detail-oriented perfectionist with strong analytical and organizational skills and creative nature, eager to learn and share my knowledge
- basic knowledge of programming concepts VB, RoR, MySql, HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, Node.js, Python, OOP. 

I started photography in summer 2014.  My first camera was my iPhone 4s for couple of months, today I mostly use Canon 6d and still do mobile photography. In two years I took more than 100K images, 2.5K are published in different places  on the internet. I gained thousands of followers in all popular social platforms. I have learned almost everything about Photography up to advanced level.  Hope my pictures will not allow to lie about it:). I build and maintain my own website. I became a contributor for Stock companies, such as Alamy, GettyImages and others, although today I took all my images out of market and made them available for public use under Creative commons license. I am also contributor to National Geographic community Your Shot, were been shortlisted few times. I hate photo contests and don’t participate. To me Photography is too personal and subjective, no one can judge objectively.

Today I feel completely conformable and ready to act as an expert who can share the knowledge with you. I don’t want you to take my words for good, I want you to check my work and, if you like it, ask yourself a question “does this guy have something to teach me?”.

Certainly I still have tonnes of stuff to learn myself. I promise to share on upcoming lessons all my knowledge; current and future.
