Prior to this position, Mr. Djerejian worked as a corporate lawyer in New York City.

He is fluent in French and conversant in Spanish and Russian. Djerejian is a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations and admitted to practice law in New York State. He attended secondary school at Phillips Academy and subsequently received a B.S.F.S. from the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in 1994 where he majored in European History and Diplomacy. He later received a J.D. from the Georgetown University Law Center in 1999.

His weblog is called the Belgravia Dispatch because Djerejian lives in that part of London and further, as the neighborhood houses many of London's embassies, the name is meant to evoke a foreign policy theme.
