Hi, I’m Sam!

BY DAY, I WORK AT THE VOCATIONAL SCHOOL, NIU COLLEGE, HELPING TO CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE STUDENTS CAN THRIVE. TO ACHIEVE THIS, I CREATE PARTNERSHIPS THAT ASSIST IN ALLEVIATING PAIN POINTS FOR OUR STAFF AND CREATING PLEASURABLE EXPERIENCES FOR OUR STUDENTS. THESE OPPORTUNITIES ARE USED TO LEARN NEW WAYS OF ENGAGING CURRENT AND FUTURE STUDENTS WHILE CONTINUING TO ADHERE TO THE STRICT GUIDELINES AND REGULATIONS OF OUR ACCREDITING BODIES.

These are some of the instruments I use throughout the day

I work best when I’m

with others

by myself

during the days

throughout the evenings

When I’m not at the office, I enjoy dabbling  in a few different things

My thoughts are occupied with

These are words I try to live by every day

If you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything

Wherever you are and whatever you do, be in love

Make today better than yesterday

Don’t take yourself too seriously

Die with memories, not dreams

Work smarter, not harder

Passion over paychecks

Prioritize connections

Invest in yourself

You win some, you lose more; make your wins count

A simple man summed up in a few words:

THE UNABRIDGED VERSION
(for those that really can’t get enough)
Los Angeles born and bred, I was the byproduct of my inspirational and loving parents, Jay and Sheyda. From a young age, I enjoyed trying to innovate new ideas and using those abilities to help others. I combined my passion with my desire to help others time and time again, feeding homeless people through a school-wide implemented sack lunch program in grade school, assisting fellow teammates as captain of the junior national basketball team of Iran, and providing analytical approaches to company problems throughout high school. This led me to continue my LA roots at my alma mater, University of California, Los Angeles. After graduating with a B.A. in Business Economics, my intrigue for design, innovation, art, food, and conversation led me to pursue a myriad of employment opportunities and even more passion projects. I am always seeking to be inspired by my surroundings, working hard on things that feel they are worth the time spent, and hanging around those that bring out the best in me.
