I am a software engineer and entrepreneur. I have started two companies in my life which has shaped me in many ways. I enjoy using new technology and learning about new ideas. I mostly specialize in web technologies but also focus on ML, big data and real-time architecture. You can find some of my projects on Github.
I was born in Iran and moved to Seattle at a young age. I started programming in high school and studied computer science at the George Washington University in Washington DC. After graduating, I worked at AOL on aol.com which taught me a lot about scalability. I left to join Opower in Arlington, VA. Opower started my career in management. After a few years, I co-founded my own startup in Los Angeles and eventually moved to San Francisco. I have led teams at Quid, Capital One labs in SF and infrastructure at UJET.
I currently live in the East Bay and work at Google on Android Auto. I am a husband and father of two litte ones. I enjoy playing with my kids, listening to music, reading books, cycling and weight training.
