Mojdeh Marashi is a writer, translator, artist and designer.
Mojdeh's work is deeply influenced by the ancient and modern history of Iran. Her writing merges the world of magical realism in Persian literature that she grew up reading, the reality of the world she lives in today, and the utopia she dreams about.
Mojdeh was born in Tehran, Iran and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1977, and now lives and work in Palo Alto, California. She is the Managing Partner at Blurred Whisper, an Idea and Design studio in Palo Alto, California, which she co-founded in 2002.
Mojdeh studied at California College of Arts (CCA) and later at San Francisco State University where she earned her M.A. in Interdisciplinary Arts and an M.A. in Creative Writing.
