Born in Tehran, Iran in 1985, I began creating art in many forms at a young age as a passionate hobby. I studied at school in a mathematical and physics stream, and studied electrical engineering during my Bachelors and Masters.
During my studies, I composed many peices of music passionately, painted many paintings, and developed ideas for stories. I am first officially published in 2012, while my music has been available underground. I moved to Canada in 2008, and despite all the problems, managed to do all of my engineering and art tasks. The last quarter of 2012 marks the point when my art is shared in public. The future is promising!

Is there any better way to spend your time than reading or writing/dreaming about a good steamy love story? I don't think so! When I'm not reading or writing, I'm usually doing damage control on the mess my life/house has become whilst I was preoccupied with said reading/writing. I also enjoy doing "research" for my stories, consuming obscenely large quantities of rum, and exploring hiking trails throughout the northeast- although not all at once.
