Painting of woman wearing woolen hat and sweater wrapped in blanket reading Shakespear in Montauk

Self portrait in Montauk

I am a sum of awes.

I am an Iranian American. I was born in Tehran. I live in Brooklyn.

 

I dwell in possibility.

 

I majored in English literature. I have a J.D. and an LL.M. I’ve passed 3 bar exams.

 

I practiced law only very briefly. 

 

I wrote and illustrated a short story called The Zig Zag Girl. It may have been somewhat autobiographical! I zigged and zagged a lot until I found the creative path where I belong.

 

I write. I illustrate. I make collages. I make animated GIFs. I style food. I needlepoint.

 

I blog about the food and culture of Iran, the country I hail from.

 

Sometimes passion is eclectic instead of specific, but it all flows from the same stream.

 

It's all good.
