I began writing screenplays at the tender age of 11, and my accomplishments in the relatively short period that followed include selling a short screenplay, working as a freelance script reader, and getting hired to write screenplays for a number of independent production companies. Until recently with my dramedy screenplay "The Gentile," I refrained from drawing from my Iranian heritage for material since I did not want to tie myself down to familiar inspirations. I usually prefer to challenge myself as a storyteller and explore alien territories through extensive research. On top of being a screenwriter, I am a classically trained actor. In fact, I got into writing after facing difficulty landing roles as a child actor (I was a weird-looking kid, and not in a good way). I plan on eventually starring in my screenplay "The Gentile," as I believe that the lead role will fully utilize my range as an actor.
