I'm a French/Iranian architect, and landscape architect. I love my work, but my life is much more than work. I feel an openness to the world reflects in your quality of work. I grew up in Iran, and in France, but feel very comfortable all over the world. I've been in the states for a while. I came here for college in Providence and I went to grad school in Cambridge, Mass.
I did yet another Masters in NYC, so i spent a lot of time at school. Ive been living in NYC ever since.
I travel a lot for work, and love going to new places, and have an appetite for world travel, and discovery. The idea that billions of people wake up to a different reality is fascinating to me .
I'm looking for similar educated, relaxed, people, to get to know, and maybe more. I appreciate good manners, as its always a sign of strength. In an ideal world I'm looking for a gentleman-scholar-athlete who is kind and patient . Who will pack novels in his camping gear to read before we fall asleep ...I know ...silly fantasy
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an architect and landscape designer. I feel at home almost everywhere ...I'm working right now developing some furnishings using traditional craftspeople from around the world, with newer more contemporary designs. I'm also working on some new projects in the middle east centered around sustainable development and animal welfare. I also move toilets around for rich people.
I’m really good at
Making gardens, working with plants, designing buildings.....i like
making people feel comfortable, and connecting with them in a
personal way. I tend to be someone who brings people together, but
I am quite independent .
I can whip up a sabayon with my eyes closed....love to cook
delicate complicated things, I trained as a cook once....
The first things people usually notice about me
depends on the angle of approach, I recommend a 3/4 angle
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
the book that I'm reading at the moment....although I love art and architecture books too.
That said I love Thomas Mann, Robert Musil, Gide, .... And of course the hilarious Mapp and Lucia series.
Harold Acton's Memoirs of an Aesthete.
I tend to read lots of non fiction, memoirs and biographies., pseudo science books about the dodo and strange giant fish. I go to the movies to see something interesting, and thought provoking...although sometimes silly movies are great on a Sunday. I fall asleep even in the most raucous computer animated crash scenes, just find them incredibly dull...bring back stuntmen
The six things I could never do without
lets be honest, basic survival only requires food air and
water....but would that be a good life?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How our thoughts and emotions tie in to the greater universe
beyond, ... the absurd, unexpected beauty of life , and how we as
humans have our part to play..i heard someone say life is a tragedy
for those who feel, and a comedy for those who think... I must say
I don't agree ;)
On a typical Friday night I am
i dont like the word typical....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i sometimes pick my nose when people are not looking....and I like
fat little dogs whose eyes look like they are about to pop out.
You should message me if
you think we should meet for a drink, and chat about life and
stuff. If you are serious about meeting someone. If you are a
gentleman/scholar/athlete please propose marriage immediately.
