As a premed major at UCLA, Arash had some of the best drawings in the margins of his notes. At the encouragement of his friends and looking at the prospect of attending medical school after graduation, he swapped textbooks for sketchbooks.

After earning his B.S. in Biology from UCLA, he honed his animation and illustration skills at the Art Academy of Los Angeles, the American Animation Institute, and the Animation Academy in Burbank.

Since 1996 he has worked as a storyboard artist, character designer, background designer and an illustrator.

Some of his clients include Sony Pictures on the "Dilbert" TV series, Disney Japan on a new prototype website, and currently has been nabbed for concept poster illustrations for the next "Harry Potter" film. Recently he has worked as a digital effects artist at Digital Domain and Rhythm and Hues on such films as "Aeon Flux" and "The Chronicles of Narnia". He continuously strives to balance his creative output between the traditional and digital media.
