About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To Burn my Torch as Brightly as Possible!

ABOUT ME

Talking about myself could also be another way of concealing myself but Just a short Bio wouldn't do much harm I guess :)

Lived my first 10 years in the States and then moved to Iran, and have lived there for almost 20 years now...I see myself as a Citizen of the world, I purely enjoy all the diverse cultures around the world, and I'm willing to explore it as much as I can. I'm also a Documentary Photographer that loves to capture the human condition in all forms...
