I am a highly creative and ambitious architect with over five years of experience in large and small scale residential and mixed-use projects.

I strive to design spaces that are meaningful and memorable. I believe that designs shape people’s lives, influences their behavior and must always have a purpose. 

I have a Master’s Degree in Architecture which was completed at the University of Tehran and a Master’s Degree in Interior Architecture that was accomplished at the California Polytechnic University at Pomona. 

My work experience includes developing architecture solutions for a variety of projects that involves all the design phases including feasibility study, pre-schematic and schematic design, documentations and collaboration with clients, consultants, various local and city departments and construction groups.

I possess impeccable technical and computer skills with knowledge of several architectural software.  My attention to details and excellent problem-solving skills ensure that every project is done accurately and to the highest possible standard and meets the client’s vision
