Education:   University of Shiraz, Iran

What was your path to becoming where you are in your career now?

It wasn’t easy but it was always worth it.

After graduation, I immediately started to work as a drafter and later on as a designer for several companies in Iran. In 2015, I immigrated to the United States and worked for a few other firms. I have enjoyed every moment of my journey.

Personal Philosophy: 

I don’t want to get the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.

Focus/Hobbies outside of work: 

I love watching movies and documentaries. Other than that, snowboarding and kart racing are my other hobbies.

What inspires your work every day? 

The challenge of the job. I love that each project is new and different. The encouraging and friendly environment that is provided by the CJA team is a key that helps me to stay motivated.

If you were a car, what make and model would you be and what color? Why?

Tesla Model S, White. What else do you expect from a car?! It’s one step ahead of others, it is fast, it makes no noise, and the most important thing – NO pollution! White: It’s hard to find a person who doesn’t like the color white!
