Coming from an American-Iranian background, from a young age I was always fascinated by cross-cultural communication and had a deep interest in how different cultures and people communicated.
That passion led me to develop a communication framework and host community discussions that would bring people together and allow them to make meaningful conversation.
In 2005 I founded Aristotle's Cafe.
Since then I've had the honor of facilitating more than 1,000 discussions, speaking with thousands of people the world over about some of life’s most important subjects for almost two decades. Additionally, I've trained a small army of more than 300 facilitators across 55 countries to share this framework and facilitate discussions that matter.
