Born and raised in Austin, Texas, I have been a country girl all my life. I love animals, admire nature, appreciate small beauties, and seek out each complexity in every simplicity. I am a Theatre and English alumni of Wagner College on Staten Island. I spend my days now in Florida, writing poems and taking photos.
I have Persian roots which inspire my love for the Persian culture. I enjoy the food, the music, the dancing, the laughing, and especially the poetry. It was by chance (or was it?) that I stumbled upon a translated collection of poems written by the Persian poet Rumi. Many moons I’ve spent re-reading his poems, dwelling on the truth hiding within his words. His poetry has strongly inspired my own voice.
As an artist, I love all forms of expression. I enjoy photography, directing, oil painting with palette knives, belly dancing, writing lyrics, acting, playing the flute, writing poetry, plays, and screenplays as well as experimenting with my own forms of art. Film is a strong passion of mine and I will always aspire to find my way into the motion picture industry.
I fell in love with poetry under the branches of Wagner’s blossoms. A pisces at heart, I am nothing short of an imaginative, compassionate, knowledgable, devoted, understanding, adaptable, free-spirited, oversensitive, sympathetic, accepting, indecisive escapist, and I found my escape through poetry. It’s undeniable, I write to heal.
I hope that in some way my words can touch you, really touch you. I wish only that you could see the world through the ripples of these blue-green pisces eyes and realize how precious you truly are.
