I was born and raised in Gaithersburg, Maryland after my parents fled Iran in light of the revolution. I grew up in a small one bedroom apartment with 10 of my relatives. I was too young to understand the financial issues my parents were facing, so I just thought my life was a big family sleepover. I'd sneak around the house at night and see what I could do without waking anyone up. Living in a space like that made me want to pretend. I think that's where I get my creativity.

I graduated from American University in December 2017 with a BA in Film & Media Arts and a minor in Business Administration
