b. 1981 Tehran, Iran

I'm a Petaluma, California-based photographer. I started on the staff of the student newspaper, The Daily Californian, at the University of California, Berkeley. After graduating with a B.A. in political science and international relations, I spent two years on the staff of The Minneapolis Star Tribune. I left in 2006 to begin working as a freelancer in Utah. My wife, who is also a photographer, and I spend most of our days chasing around, feeding, and photographing our little girl Emerson.
