How did you get your start in solar? Besides accounting background, I have a master degree in energy economics and marketing. Also, I have been working in renewable energy industry for over 6 years. I was reached out by SOLV team for this new opportunity and found them a great team to work with.

What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in the past year? Everything is temporary: emotions, thoughts, people, and scenery. Don’t become attached, just flow with it.

Who inspires you to be better? My wife is the person who keeps me inspired and push me to be a better person every day! I would like to give some credits to our two dogs, too!

What was your dream job when you were growing up? When I was younger I wanted to be an “Authentic Persian Hand knotted rug collector/seller”. As grew up I realized that I need to massage the truth to be a successful seller and it wasn’t a match with my personality. Then I decided to be an accountant which was more me!

What's one weird (or unique) thing about you? My eyes won’t lie to you. You can ask me a question and get your answer from my face.

If you could make one rule that everyone had to follow, what rule would you make? I would ask everyone to try “achieving ambitious goals through marginal improvement in decisions”. This means that you improve your life just for a tiny bit by making good decisions on a day-to-day basis and you will be doing great in the long run! If individuals become successful, our society will become successful!

What’s one of your favorite phrases or quotes? Treat people the way you want to be treated. Talk to people the way you want to be talked to. Respect is earned, not given.

What is something that everyone looks stupid doing? Spending the money they don’t have (credit cards) on the stuff that they don’t need! (Consumerism)
