CV / Bio

I’m an Iranian-Born Canadian Citizen who grew up in Los Angeles.

I started learning english at 7 years old, and got my first PC soon after.

My favorite languages are HTML, JavaScript, PHP, and CSS - the languages of the web.

I got my first gig at a young age

I made my first $50 at 12 years old by handing out flyers door-to-door.

I also spent time behind a computer then. And didn’t know I was taking part in professional things, like making short films, using 2d animations for class projects, and make mini-games with JavaScript and Flash just for fun.

I had a few jobs by my early 20’s, from serving ice cream, to retail, and corporate B2B.

I was a QA professional for video games too, coming up with ways to produce bugs on major titles pre release. It was a great job to have at 18. I found it through a simple Google search, it was the first result!

It was my first ever job in high school. I would greet customers, serve frozen treats, and ring up the register. Also, sweeping and mopping. It was a great experience for me in getting over the fear of saying hello to strangers.

I stopped everything except what I ❤️

I performed well at my jobs. At 23 years old, I decided to start learning Website Development and SEO to start my own business.

Even dropping out of college to do it, too… To lock myself away for some years to study HTML, CSS, and SEO. To eventually offer high quality work that I enjoy.
