Originally from Iran, I spent four years in Peru then made my way to Los Angeles, where I currently reside. I’m an award-winning Design Director currently working at Phenomenon. Prior to that, I was Art Director/Designer for Toth+Co, Vitro, FCB, and PVH.

I have a diverse background having worked in the graphic design, fashion, and advertising industries all around the country and am a hands-on, highly collaborative creative leader with experience across identity, branding, advertising, packaging, and digital design. I fundamentally believe that thoughtful design must be rooted in simplicity, if a solution is too complex it will get lost in the chaos. 

My work recently contributed to Phenomenon being named Ad Age’s “2018 Small Agency of the Year” and I currently sit on the Board of Directors for AIGA Los Angeles

Beyond design and advertising, I am involved in several passion projects which allow me to exercise my curiosity while using the tools and knowledge acquired through my professional experience. 

To unwind, I'm a person who loves to live the Anthony Bourdain lifestyle having traveled to over 100+ cities all around the world, taking in inspiration from all facets of life.
