Born in Tehran, Iran in 1962, Reza moved to the UK as a teenager, first studying in England before moving to Scotland to complete his PHD in Computer Science.
His life-long obsession with Persian & Oriental rugs started with a rug passed from his now late father, and led to him opening the Little-Persia gallery in 2003.
