Reza Mashayekhi was born and raised in Tehran, Iran. He later attended the University of Michigan, where he received a degree in aerospace engineering.
He has been a consulting engineer in San Diego, but his true passion now is writing and directing. Frustrated by the practical limitations of engineering, he sometimes uses fiction as a far less constrained medium of expression to help him give life to his thoughts and far-reaching imagination. His writings are mostly inspired by true events. "I start writing about them," he says, "and then let my imagination take over."
Reza has always been interested in learning the intricacies of the English language and, alongside of his engineering work, he has taught English to non-English speakers.
Reza’s interactions with his students and clients, has also led to the compilation of a book of English idioms and expressions, aptly titled: English Idioms And Expressions For Everyone, Yes, Even You! His experience as a non-native speaker of English living and working in the U.S., makes this book uniquely interesting AND useful for both native AND non-native English speakers. He says, "I truly believe a print copy of this book belongs on every coffee table."

This is a great book, very useful for the study of English idioms and phrases! The fact that includes proverbs from different cultures makes it even more valuable. I will definitely use some of the input here in my future English classes!
