I am a journalist, photographer, and videographer currently based in Paris, France. I’ve covered topics as varied as the fashion industry to the refugee crisis. Human resilience is what inspires me most.

A bit more on my background: I’m an Iranian-American born and raised in southern California. In 2012, I left the beach to study the world. I first moved to Washington, D.C. to study at the American University. I packed my bags and moved eastward again in 2014, settling in Paris to finish my bachelor's degree at the American University of Paris and went on to get a French master’s degree at Sciences Po’s School of Journalism. I work in both French and English.
