I started working in an architectural firm while earning my bachelor’s degree. As an architectural designer, I thrive in a team environment as well as on my own. I am a quick-minded problem solver with a wide range of knowledge & skills, able to acquire unknown information and assess a new situation quickly.

To create and design is more than a profession for me; I live and breathe architecture. I am a well-organized multi-tasker eager to learn and discover the world, technology, and software. When working with clients, I can interpret their particular architectural and design tastes. My extensive traveling has also enhanced my abilities to visualize creative spaces.

After settling down in the Bay Area, I began to work in architectural firms as well as a freelance designer and drafter for several architectural companies in Residential and Commercial projects. This work experience familiarized me with California building codes and city requirements and added the value being able to be creative in both modern and traditional architectural design world.

My background and education in concrete and metal construction in Iran and experience in California make me well-suited to work comfortably in various designs.
