I'm a passionate and dedicated Architect with a strong background in architectural design and a keen interest in technology. From an early age, my fascination with construction and building led me to pursue a career in architecture. My childhood experiences of playing with LEGO and observing construction sites sparked his curiosity and shaped my passion for creating innovative and sustainable spaces.

With a solid educational foundation, I hold a PhD in Architecture, specializing in Architecture Technology and Sustainability from Islamic Azad University. This academic achievement has provided me with a deep understanding of the principles and practices of sustainable design, as well as expertise in areas such as BIM, Digital Architecture, Sustainable Design, Interior Design, and Construction Details Design.

In addition to my academic pursuits, I gained valuable experience as a university lecturer in the higher education industry. This experience has allowed me to refine my skills and knowledge in various areas of architecture. I thoroughly enjoys the architectural design process, whether it involves creating new spaces or generating innovative ideas for renovation and refurbishment projects.

Beyond my professional pursuits, I identifies myself as a geek and technology enthusiast. These personal interests further fuel my creativity and drive to explore new possibilities in architectural design.

Overall, my combination of technical knowledge, creative thinking, and enthusiasm for technology make me a valuable asset in the field of architecture
