About Me

Greetings from Abadan, where my journey began, now thriving in Sydney, Australia!

I'm currently stationed at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) as a Social Media Specialist and Content Creator. With over 5 years of experience in A, I've cultivated expertise in crafting captivating digital content and expertly managing social media landscapes.

My early roots saw me working with Abadan's Sports and Youth Department at the age of 14. As I honed my skills, I transitioned into the world of media, contributing to notable names like Hamshahri Newspaper and Goal Daily Newspaper. Through my lens, I've captured the essence of sports and translated it into captivating visual narratives.

Presently, my canvas spans across IG, TW, and FB, where I've orchestrated impressive campaigns for AFC. My Adobe Application prowess, including Photoshop and Lightroom, complements my knack for visual storytelling.

Let's connect and explore the boundless possibilities of fusing sports, media, and digital artistry, no matter the geographical divide!
