I have been passionate about acting and writing since I was in primary school, growing up watching mostly comedy as a child. My influences have been shows such as Absolutely Fabulous, Rosanne, Get Smart and Seinfeld, funny shows that blur the lines of absurdity, reality and genius.
Born in Iran, my family moved to Melbourne, Australia when I was three years old, after living in Germany for two years (allowing me to support a team likely to win a FIFA World Cup). Growing up in Melbourne during the 90's inspired me to pursue a more creative path, rather than the traditional ethnic stereotypical careers like Medicine or Law (plus I wasn’t likely to get into either). As well as loving the creative arts, I am proficient in Kyokushin Karate, Kickboxing and Boxing, as well as competition pistol shooting in my spare time.
I studied acting in Los Angeles and moved back to Melbourne to create and tell various stories that include absurdity, reality and genius... well absurdity.
