I BELIEVE IN CONSTANT GROWTH

I am mostly an idea guy with an in-depth understanding of customer psychology. Some of my UI/UX ideas are already implemented on some well-known platforms by some startups and big companies. I have experience working with international teams as well.

  • Mechanical and Digital Product Design

  • UI/UX Design

  • Project Management

  • Business Design

Currently, I am working in the Product Design (mechanical and digital) and Project Management industry, which I highly enjoy. So far, I have been engaged in various mechanical and digital business projects, helping startups, private companies, and small businesses reach solutions for their complex problems.

My expertise includes multiple design processes such as User-Centered design, Customer-Centered design, Human-Centered design, Environment-Centered design, Planet-Centered design, Living-Centered design, and ultimately, Stakeholder-Centered design process. In my master thesis, I used stakeholder-centered design to identify problems, overcome challenges, and reach comprehensive solutions.

As an expert in User Experience, Engineering, Adobe Photoshop, branding, mechanical and app development, I can help my teammates, co-workers, and clients reach new opportunities by providing simple solutions for complex problems.

It’s rare that you come across standout talent like Saman.

I have known him since 1989 as a fellow friend in school. He is still as creative and sharp as then! When I working on my first start-up, NADCo, we needed a real talent to open overseas markets for us and we were lucky that Saman accepted our offer. He revolutionised our marketing approach and then start helping us in product design and managing some critical core projects.

I was particularly impressed by Saman’s ability to find innovative solutions to our complex problems and his extraordinary interpersonal skills. these skills often take years to develop among professionals, but they seemed to come perfectly naturally to him.

Saman would be an asset to any team!
