Arash is an entrepreneur, athlete, motivational speaker, and writer with an award-winning blog detailing his continuing recovery from a traumatic spinal cord injury he suffered in 2012. Featured in Forbes, Al Jazeera, ABC News, and TEDx, he has shared his inspirational story with a number of audiences including Silicon Valley CEOs, universities, corporate executives, and conferences. He collaborates regularly with companies developing exo-skeleton robotic suits that aim to replace wheelchairs and allow paralyzed people to walk.
In 2015, he co-founded No Limits Collaborative, a non-profit aimed at helping people with neurological conditions to access exercise, physical therapy and improved quality of life and he completed a 5-mile swim around a lake to raise money for his charity.
Arash has also established a regularly occurring standup comedy show that raises funds for people with spinal cord injuries. A Bay Area native, Arash credits his California upbringing for his love of the outdoors and nature, activities he still cherishes as he continues to travel, explore and enjoy new experiences.
