Info

When I was 4, I migrated from Tehran, Iran to San Jose, CA.  Some years later, I saw a couple of movies that made me want to try to make my own.  I've been fortunate to have so many talented collaborators and friends help me make stuff. I also have a wonderful family that I owe everything to, especially my wife Rachael.  I'm currently Director & Partner at Even/Odd and based in San Francisco.
