I was born in 1956 in Iran. In 1980, I received BS degree in Computer Science, and worked as a computer programmer until 1988, when I moved to United States. 

After my first son was born, I decided to stay home to raise him. Since I had too much time on my hands, I started designing knit and crochet garments. Crafting had been my passion since age 5 when my mother taught me to knit. Later I learned crocheting from a craft teacher in high school. 

My first design was published in knitting World magazine in 1992. Ever since, my designs have appeared in such magazines as Knitting Digest, Crochet Digest, Crafts 'n Things, Pack-O-Fun, Crochet World, Annie's crochet newsletter, Hooked on Crochet, Crafts, Quick & Easy Crochet, Crochet Fantasy and Inspirational Crafts. Some of my designs have also been published in pattern books such as Irresistible Vests, Inspirational Crochet, Vests made easy, Afghan Jamboree, Special stitches Mile-A-minute afghans and Big Book of Slippers. 

My designs can be found in the following hard cover books: Grandmother's Favorite Crochet, Gifts from The Heart, Hooked on Afghans. In 1998, House of White Birches featured seven of my rag rug patterns in Quick and easy Rag Rugs pattern book. 

I joined the Marin Knitters' Guild in 1990 and joined the Marin Crochet guild in 1996 since it started. At present I am the president of Crochet guild. 

Since 1996 I have been teaching crafts at the Novato Parks and recreation department. I also am a Certified Knitting Instructor by CYCA (craft Yarn council of America) since 1997. 

In 1996 I started offering designs on the Internet at http://www.craftland.com and added e-commerce enhanced Web site design and development to my list of activities. 

I am happily married for sixteen years and have two boys ages ten and seven.
