About Me


Exploring Music of the Silk Road


I live in Tokyo with my wife, I have been in Japan for 12 years. I am a musician and play several Silk Road region instruments from Iran, Afghanistan and Turkey.

I am a political liberal and a strong believer in peace and the power of the arts to unite people across cultures and borders.

I work in IT for a day job.

I love music, meeting people and learning new thing always.


Life is about the people we share it with. Doesn't matter how much fame or money you have, if you don't have true connections with people, you have nothing.


Each one of us is responsible for making the world a better place in how we live, think and care for people around us.
