On April 25, 2007 I got on a plane alone at the age of 23 to cross the atlantic to come to Canada. I have never been to north america before and I have never been on a plane alone with no family or friends. I cried the whole flight from Tehran to London as… Continue reading An update after 10 years!
It is 12:52 am Friday night or Saturday morning! It is always hard to be specific about the time and date between 12 and 6 am but I hope it is clear enough. It is December 31, 2016.

I started my journey of career change or better say lifestyle change back in September 2015.

I have been always looking at those people truly living their legends as aliens. Those who are excited about their projects, those who are creative and enthusiastic about what they do and their careers.
