he looks like Ashkenazi Jew

I know Russian Jews who look similar

but he was born in the area of Turkey and maybe he has Black Sea Turkish roots

I agree with you @Neil Tennant. I would have guest Ashkenazi Jewish before Armenian ancestry.

I KNOW so many ARMENIANS most of them look like TURKS or IRANIANS
