I was born in Tehran-Iran in 1987. Music became an essential part of my life when I was a child. My first serious musical contact was with the Violin, where I started taking lessons at the age of 5. As I grew older I got in touch with more instruments like Kamancheh (Iranian String instrument) and more specific with Piano.
In 2010, I graduated from the University of Tehran in “Music Performance” with honors and I moved to Amsterdam to study “Composing for the film” at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam. After two years of working closely with several directors from the Nederlands Film en Televisie Academie, and under the supervision of Jurre Haanstra, I gained my Master’s degree in 2012. In 2015, I graduated from the Royal Conservatory of The Hague where I studied composition with Martijn Padding and Yannis Kyriakides.
