About 

My architectural studies began in my home country of Iran where I received an associates degree in architecture. In 2011, I moved to United States, and continued my studies at North Dakota State University.

I have worked at architecture firms in both my home country Iran and United States. Currently, I am working as a Project Manager at Atelier New York Architecture which has given me a valuable experience in New York building code and interacting with clients, while managing multiple tasks in the office.

I have a great passion towards art, philosophy, and meaningful architecture. I believe that architecture lends the designer the ability to imagine and direct bodily movements throughout spaces, as it has the power to impact and attune one’s mood. My hope is to create a desire of participation throughout the practice of architecture in the same way that a great piece of art impacts us.
