Born in Tehran, Iran, I started to paint at the age of 9 at Shiraz Center for Art and Culture. Later I studied Graphic Design at the Tehran Art University until my MA degree in 2003. I have been working professionally in the field of Graphic Design since 1997 and have been a Member of International Council of Graphic Design Associations since 2004. As a Graphic Designer I have worked for numerous companies. I have exhibited my works in numerous galleries as solo artists or as a member of an ensemble of artists, for example at the Negarkhaneh Vesal Shiraz in 1995 and 1997. Participating in Iran's Youth Festival in Pastel, Urumia, Iran, in 1997, I won the highest prize of the jury and at the same festival held in Shiraz, Iran, in 1998, I won the Gold Prize. One of my works was exhibited at the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art in 2000. As a member of teaching staff I have worked as docent of Graphic Design at the School of Art and Architecture of the Azad Islamic University of Tehran, Iran, from 2001 to 2011. Since 1996 I have studied and worked with the famous international artist Gholmhossein Nami.
