Born and raised in Tehran, Iran, I moved to the United States in 2005 and started my BFA in illustration at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. After two years I moved to Maryland and finished my Bachelor degree in Illustration with Book Arts concentration at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in 2010. I pursued my education towards the MFA in Illustration Practice at MICA in 2011 and I graduated in May 2013 with the Certificate in the College Teaching of Art. My work has been recognized by The Society of Illustrators in New York and The Illustrator's Club of DC, MD and VA. Currently I live in Maryland and work as an adjunct faculty at MICA and as a freelance illustrator.
