I'm originally from Tabriz, Iran. I studied and worked in Toronto, Canada before coming to the US. I am blessed to have a loving family by my side. My beautiful wife, Elnaz, is a consultant at BCG. Our dog, Mocha, keeps us sane from work.
When I am not working (and awake) I am most likely playing chess, hiking, or spending time with family.
Note: I rarely decline a chess challenge or a casual conversation about chess.
