About Me


live and learn


I am a composer and harpsichordist living in Los Angeles, California. I was born in Iran but my family, like many other Iranians at the time, left Iran because of the revolution. I enjoy simple things in life, I live in a community with lots of fellow artists and musicians so there there are always lots of concerts and gatherings happening. Most people would describe me as easy going, positive, and fun to be around. I'm always ready to try new things and am very independent as a traveller.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted people in Los Angeles and been in touch in general to give advice about visiting or living in the US.


I have couchsurfed with many amazing hosts in Iran and the United States. I have also hosted people and been in touch with local travelers in my hometown of Los Angeles, CA.


I love being out in nature, going to concerts, seeing art, and getting together with friends.

Music, Movies, and Books

So many to list! If I had to pick one favorite book it would be Dave Eggers' "You Shall Know Our Velocity" if I had to pick one movie it would be The Motorcycle Diaries

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Walked over a glacier in Alaska.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach music related topics (I play the harpsichord)and I also work as a standardized test tutor in the US so I can teach the GRE, LSAT, SAT, and ACT.
