I was born in Tehran, where I received double immersion Franco_Persian education and later worked at the Planning & Budget Organization and the Ministry of Education. After immigrating to the United States, I continued my education to obtain a two track doctoral degree in literature and pedagogy, followed by years of creating and directing language programs as well as teaching at the higher education during which I published three language textbooks.
Now retired I spend my time translating, painting and volunteering.
I have always felt passionate about painting, however it was in 2014 that the white page, brushes and colors were not of prohibition anymore and became possibilities ....
