    About me

    I am a painter, Screenwriter as well as an independent Section 12 Doctor working in London. I completed MD from Islamic Azad University in Tehran in 2003, BA in English Literature in 2012 and MA in English in 2015 at the Open University and MA in Screenwriting at Birkbeck University in 2020.

    I have always been very interested in cinema and theatre and wanted to become an actress when I was 10, but unfortunately it didn't materialize. I began a PhD in Film Studies at Roehampton University in 2015, but left after a year as I realized I wanted to be involved in the practical aspect of the industry than its academic side, which was to tell stories using the film medium. I started to write when I was much younger writing short stories for myself. I completed the MA in Screenwriting to gain the knowledge of the screenwriting process and would love to build on what I've learned during the course by gaining experience in Script reading/Screenwriting/film and TV development and production in the industry in order to one day soon, be able to work full time as a Screenwriter/showrunner/film and TV development team.

    I also was taught painting and drawing formally by Mr Mehdi Alizadeh, one of famous Iranian painters, in Tehran, Iran between 1996 and 2000. Two of my paintings have been published in the British Journal of Psychiatry- 'Before the Meeting' in psychiatry in pictures section in April 2011 and 'Melancholia' as the front cover of January 2014 edition. My triptych 'Hell, Halloween, Fairy Tales' was exhibited at the RCPsych international congress in July 2019 in London. My favorite style of painting is expressionism. I have used my painting and drawing skills in my clinical practice e.g. creating posters on psychiatry literature and including illustrations of selected literary works in them.

    Additional Information

    I also would like very much to gain experience in storyboarding for film and TV in an entry level position in the industry to build on my artistic experience in order o one day be able to work as a storyboard artist for film and TV.
