I am a second-generation Iranian living in the UK. I was born in Maryland, USA in 1976 and moved to London at the age of eight. I grew up in Putney and attended Kingston University where I received a bachelors in Fine Art.
I now work as a photographer/artist, living in Islington, north London with my wife Joceline and son Faris. My work concentrates on my personal life and the lives of those close to me.
