A typical day in my life includes…Spending hours upon hours on the computer and working in our retail stores when in SF, NY, LA, PDX, or Los Cabos

I was born…in Ahwaz, Iran

My favorite thing about Los Cabos is…the food, the weather, the drinks, the people, the realness of many of the local businesses

I’m listening to…Garden of Delete by Oneotrix Point Never

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…Hunter S. Thompson

One thing I cannot live without…My wife

When I was younger, I wanted to be…My dad and a baseball player

I’m inspired by…traveling to places which change your perception of people and places

The one person who motivates me is…the strongest person I know, my wife

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…to stop world hunger

The perfect day would be…the day world-wide poverty isn’t an issue

My first job was…at a pretentious record shop, not unlike the one in High Fidelity

My favorite escape…a fun or long drive with a good sound system. I wish I could say it was something more exotic…

My life…I have no idea how I got here, but it’s been fun along the way

I’m currently working on…selling you a pair of jeans

Always…make sure to order one last round right before the bar closes

Never…lie to anybody

My Pet Peeve(s)….Bad tortillas, bad air conditioning in hotels, bad Wifi, and people who lie
