Born in Iran, 1985, moved to the UK with my parents and younger brother when I was 7. Through a background in basketball and kickboxing I found a passion in weight training from the age of 13 when I bought my first York weightlifting set. Along with sports, I grew consistently in muscularity.
Even though I had no real interest in getting on stage, after I finished university, aged 21, I had time on my hands so started a typical bodybuilder lifestyle, training routine, meals and rest.
I grew consistently and was told to compete but I just enjoyed life and training too much so didn’t care much. Until 6 years later when I was 27, I thought I’d try my luck and competed in my first show. I won, caught the bug and it spiraled from there very quickly.

At this moment I am prepping for 2018 California pro show. My aim this year is to achieve a pro win and make it to the Olympia stage. I WILL be in the the winners circle and on the Olympia stage soon.
Ultimately my long term goal is to place top 6 at the Mr Olympia, and I know I have what it takes. I need to train smart as I want longevity in this sport and a long career of successful showings and to be a great ambassador for bodybuilding whilst representing my home, the UK.
