Contact information -

I have been a registered Green since the Green Party became a political party in California. I was the Green Party candidate for Lieutenant Governor in 1998, receiving a quarter of a million votes and a candidate for the 42nd State Assembly District in 2000 receiving 10% of the votes in a largely Democratic district.

Twenty five (25) years of working for the California Environmental Protection Agency has given me experience in understanding legislation, administration and negotiation.

I was born and educated in Iran, earned a B.S. degree in Biology from the University of Tehran and a Master's Degree in Environmental Engineering from the University of Southern California. Upon returning to Tehran after graduation, I worked to promote democracy and women's rights under the newly formed Islamic Republic of Iran. I returned to the US in 1981 when conditions became intolerable for many activists and intellectuals, and started a new life in California.

I was elected to the KPFK Local Station Board in 2003, and have been the CAL/EPA designee on the Baldwin Hills Conservancy Board since 2000.

I strongly believe in the 4 pillars of the Green Party and committed to the 10 key values. I also believe that we have a tremendous opportunity to positively affect the Green Evolution/Revolution.
