I'm an Iranian-American living and working in San Francisco at the University of California. I love being outdoors and exploring the Bay at any chance I get. My favorite foods include pizza, arepas, pupusas and anything bacon wrapped. One of my top favorite activities is kicking back in the sunshine with family, friends,a frisbee, fine beer, and my fluffy dog, Kiara. As a guest in someone else's home, I'm observant, conscientious, and go about the place as if it were my own home. I'm of the 'leave no trace' conviction, and tend to leave a place as clean, if not cleaner, than I find it. This especially applies to the environment-- I'm an avid and tidy composter/recycler/trash sorter.
