Los Angeles, CA, US



I am a creative and ambitious architect with several years of experience in variety of projects which include large and small scale residential and commercial buildings.

I have a Bachelor and a Master’s Degree in Architecture from University of Tehran which is one of the best and oldest universities in Iran. I have also completed a second Master’s degree in Interior Architecture by California Polytechnic University Pomona.

For the past three years I have been working with Synthesis Design Company in Santa Monica.  At Syntheses I am involved in all phases of design from schematic design to CD and pulling permits as well as assisting with the construction management. In addition to design activities, I am responsible with coordinating project issues with clients, vendors, outside consultants and contractors.

I possess impeccable technical and computer skills with advanced knowledge of Auto Cad, Revit, Rhino (grass hopper, membrane 24) Sketch Up, 3D Studio Max and Photoshop. At my current job our projects are done by ArchiCAD which I learned with no previous knowledge or training.

I enjoy challenges and learning new skills as well as improving my old ones. My attention to detail and excellent problem-solving skills ensure that every project I work on is done accurately and to the highest possible standard. I am comfortable working as part of a team but also have the ability to take an authoritative role when the situation arises.
