About Amir

I grew up abroad in a multicultural world. I love diversity. I think it makes the world a better place. Naturally, meeting new interesting people is very exciting to me. There is so much to learn from each other.

After finishing college I began working as a software engineer on video editing software and have been doing that for the past 10+ years. In the intersection between science and art, I am most at home when form meets function in the most elegant ways. It is so exciting to be able to watch a movie and know exactly how it is made, right down the each pixel. If you're interested in this sort of thing, I love chatting about it-- but be forewarned, you may never be able to watch a movie the same way. The magic of film-making can sometimes go away when you know how it works.

I love adventure! My wife and I met at a Lindy Hop dance, we've been scuba diving, skydiving, and I even have my very own paraglider. If you're an adventurous type too, I'd be happy to give you some ideas for things to do while you're visiting Seattle. I look forward to hosting you and chatting about interesting topics!

Amir purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Amir chose Phinney Ridge

As an engineer, I absolutely love fixing things and tinkering. Naturally, I spent the past several years upgrading our home. I decided it would be great to share all the upgrades and hard work I've done and list it on Airbnb. It really has been a labor of love for me. My wife and I live nearby, so we're always close by if something breaks. I know the home inside and out and will do everything I can to make sure your stay is amazing.

Never Stay in a Hotel Again!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent 4 lovely nights and loved everything about this sweet property. Having a garage for the rental car was a great feature. We felt safe, comfortable and spoiled by all the special features of this townhouse. Amir was very helpful. I would highly recommend this VRBO and hopefully will return in the future!

Comfortable, well-equipped & in great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed and even some nice leftover grocery items that we enjoyed!! It was very well equipped, and we particularly enjoyed the stereo connections and talking to "Alexa." It was just the right size and layout for two adult couples. We love Ballard, and we really enjoyed the Barking Dog. Had drinks and two separate meals there in our short stay. Would enjoy coming back in warmer weather to take advantage of the lovely yard and firepit area.

Lovely townhouse in great neighborhood in Phinney Ridge

  • 5 of 5

Great stay! Amir was quick to follow up with any questions. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer. The townhouse is pretty and light with a nice three-story layout - and they've thought of all the little details like spare phone chargers, etc.The tech features are all pretty slick (my husband had a great time tinkering) Very comfy king bed. The neighborhood is great - the Barking Dog is just down the block. Hope to be back soon!
