I first came to Denver, Colorado in Spring of 1978 and atteneded University of Denver and Community College of Denver. Moved to Northeast in mid 1980's and have been living in the Hamptons full time since year 1992. I was born in Tehran and grow up in North of Tehran, attended boys and girls elementary schools and Sohail school and at age of 10 compiled and authored over 10 children book stories that were published by my father who was a author and owned book stores, the first Capitain of the Rugby Team in Iran, Soccer player, Long distance swimmer and a mountain climber, my mother Mari was a philantrophist,my fathers biggest fan and the best mother and my best friend. We enjoyed going to camping trips and sleeping in the tent to Karadj and spent Persian New Years in Shiraz and summer weekends utside of Shahsavar by the Caspian sea in our house that had (has) citrus grove, a fig tree, one prismone tree and hydrengeas,pomegrante flowers and a small natural spring and a swimming pool that was taken over by the sea water during fall/winter. We travelled a lot and entertained a lot too. Played Tennis at Alam Club and went hiking with my father occasionally. We had four (one by Caspian sea) different dogs as I was growing up and a cat. Was sent to boaring school when I was 13, returned to Tehran and worked for Northrop Communication Company of Virgina and Grumman/IACI where I held a Top Security Clearance until April 1978. I was popular amongst my friends or coworkers and invited them to our home and introduced them to my parents. We spent week-ends going out to dinner, swiss resturant, Chatanoga, Casba, chomineh, chandollieh and priv clube where we listened to Darius. I like to write and read, love art and enjoy the nature and simple life. Have two dogs. I like to prepare simple food and entertain at home.
