Awesome Washingtonian of the Day Sept 12, 2010

Name: Ardeshir Namazi
Live in: Virginia
Originally from: Tehran, Iran
Profession: Software Developer
What I love about DC area the most: Out of all the cities my life has taken me  and I’ve lived in including   Tehran, New York, Washington DC, Beirut, Dubai, and London, I love Washington, D.C. the most where I’ve got enjoyment with comfort. That is why I am finally settled in DC again 🙂 

Favorite Music video:

About me: I was born in Tehran. After Iran’s revolution in 1979, my family and I migrated to New York. At the age of 14 I started working as a data entry operator in New York and begin to find that I have a strong attraction to software innovation. By the age of 16 I started my first technology consulting company and have been intensely involved in the industry ever since.

I have a wonderful daughter, had a successful marriage and a successful divorce Description: :-) Since I thought my marriage was so great I decided to get married again Description: ;-)Waiting in anticipation so that my wife can join me here in DC soon. Meanwhile, I’m  partying on weekends at Lima lounge.

I currently work for Motionsoft as a Senior Software Architect. I think the company has a great future and one huge reason why my DC experience is so favorable. I am truly enjoying my work. Btw, we are looking for other great people to join us; specifically in Product Manager and in Software Developer roles.
