As well, throughout my adventures in journalism, I’ve interviewed Sir Paul Smith, Christian Lacroix, Salma Hayek, John Varvatos, Anna Sui, Katharine Hamnett, Barbara Hulanicki, Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), and Marjane Satrapi, amongst many other luminaries.
I am also the author of a translation of Omar Khayyam’s Robaiyat, a novella (Coming Down Again), two volumes of poetry (Elsewhere and Lovers of Light), and a collection of stories and essays (With My Head in the Clouds and Stars in My Eyes). In addition, my writing can be found in such books as Mahdi Ehsaei’s Afro-Iran, Sarah Maple’s Not My Cup of Tea, UNCOMMON DUBAI +, and Ali Mobasser’s Stamps of a Revolution.
