Born in Tehran-Iran, Reza moved to Chi-Town, USA in 85' where he learned English from watching Sanford & Son. Wanting to be the next Steve Vai, Reza started playing the guitar, but found that he tweaked his amp knobs more than wankin' the whammy bar. This knob fetish led to an engineering career by the age of 19. After moving to San Francisco in 96', Reza started DirtyHertz Productions, a music and sound design facility. In addition to his original recordings, he has composed music and designed sounds for companies such as: Apple computer, Big Fish Audio, E-MU Systems, Kurzweil Musical Systems, MTV, NASA and Sound Ideas.
