How did you discover Bridge? When did you first start playing?
I discovered the Bridge game after a family friend asked me why I do not play Bridge, and I said what is Bridge? She explained to me that it had nothing to do with roads or bridges, it is a card game. I think it was 2016 or 2017. After a long conversation, I agreed to go to her club (Parramatta Bridge Club) and learned Bridge and I loved it. I love all card games but Bridge for me honestly is the best of all the card games that I know.

Why did you decide to become a Bridge Teacher? 
As a matter of fact, I enjoy teaching and also I like to help the others to learn this beautiful game because the elderly and retired people need some activity it is good for them to be kept away from bad habits.

What do you enjoy most about playing/teaching Bridge?
I enjoy it because Bridge is an intellectual game and involves planning. It’s like when you want to build a house you need a foundation first and so on.

Tell us something most people don’t know about you?
I am a civil and construction engineer. I studied in Germany, worked in Iran and after regime change in Iran, I left the country and went to Germany where I was teaching in vocational training school. In 1983, I migrated to Australia. I was self-employed and worked in the housing industry until I retired in 2015.
