Esfahan, Iran

I was an illustrator before moving into art direction and copywriting for advertising. After creative director roles at two London advertising agencies, I went freelance in July 2010. I now work across design, web development, copywriting, illustration, photography and film.

I have art directed and written for numerous clients including Canon, Google, Nikon, Reuters, Sony, Toyota and YouTube. Illustration clients have included The Evening Standard, The New York Times and The Spectator. I was also a judge for The Guardian CIPD creative awards.

I have travelled and photographed over 40 countries worldwide. My images have been published by BBC News, The Boston Globe, Die Spiegel, The Independent, Lonely Planet, National Geographic Traveller and Time Out.
