I am Ready to Serve
From my high tech and public policy work, to my non-profit volunteerism and legal training, I am prepared to serve as your voice on our City Council.

I am an attorney who practices family law in Mountain View. Prior to starting my own practice I was Corporate and Government Affairs Counsel at Synopsys, Inc. I possess a background of policy and technology. I have worked as legislative counsel for Congresswoman Linda Sanchez, a congressional aide for Speaker Nancy Pelosi and served as a legislative fellow with Congressman Patrick Murphy. Prior to my work on Capitol Hill, I worked in Silicon Valley for companies such as Fujitsu Inc. and Cisco Systems. While pursuing my law degree I worked at the Santa Clara District Attorney’s Office and was a law clerk at the Department of Justice in Washington DC.

I am also very involved in the community where I serve on the Advisory Board of Pars Equality Center, the Board of Directors for Greater Opportunities (a nonprofit that aids developmentally disabled individuals) and have been appointed by the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors to serve on the Santa Clara County Mental Health Board. I hold a B.S. in Anthropology from Santa Clara University and J.D. from Santa Clara University School of Law. I also speak fluent Farsi!
