I was born in Iran. I have called Australia home since mid 1990s where I pursued a career in law and worked in various community-based organisations and statutory bodies over the years.
For a significant part of my legal career, I worked with refugees and asylum seekers from different countries including Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Burundi, Sierra Leone, Burma, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.
I have also been involved in multiple municipal projects engaging migrants who had migrated to Australia post second World War, including but not limited to people from Malta, Greece, Italy, Germany, Poland and Ukraine.

I have a deep sensitivity in working with people who have experienced war, conflict and loss of culture and home. I have a profound understanding of the impact of these experiences on migrants and refugees and their everyday life in Australia.
With over 20 years’ experience in legal case work, community development, community engagement & project management and policy development within the human rights framework, I am versatile and capable of taking on challenging projects.
I am also a photographer, a writer and a story- teller, as such I have a unique set of skills and sensitivity to capture people’s stories and voices.
