About me
I love reading and traveling. I have been in all continents of the world except North and South Poles. I split most of my times between  DC area, Rome, Tehran, and Buenos Aires for both fun and running our family business. I also write for Awesome DC whenever I get chance because I see DC with great potential. Although, I am only in DC area 3 to 4 month a year, I would love to finally settle down in Washington, DC area once or if I ever get married.
