About 

I have a Master of Architecture degree and strong experience in design and production.  My early work experience in architecture started in Iran and France.  Over the last ten years, I have been working in Southern California and have worked with different architectural firms. 

This diversity provided an opportunity to work on a variety of project types from commercial to multi-family residential (wrap,podium, and walk-up) as well as taking responsibility for a broad range of architectural processes.  Responsibilities have included site analysis, yield studies, schematic design, design development, construction documents as well as participation in the preparation of RFPs. 

To generate this work, I have utilized both hand drawing techniques and computer graphics including: PhotoShop, Illustrator, Indesign, SketchUp, Bluebeam, AutoCAD and Revit. I am also proficient in Microsoft Office.
