Background and/or experience in IG (50 words); feel free to include a link:
I have been active in ICANN and Internet Governance field since 2008 (IGF Hyderabad, continued till today), and now a member of the MAG.
Coordinated the formulation of PersianIGF, the Internet Governance Forum for the community of Persian language speaking people who are distributed around the world but mostly located at Iran, Tajikistan and Afghanistan.
Motivation and goals (50 words):
IG requires participation of all stakeholders from all communities. I am trying to make the Persian community more involved in IG matters by bringing awareness to them through Tehran ICT association (as civil society organization with direct access to ICT professionals), PersianIGF and iJMA3 Persia (the regional subsidiary of the Arab ICT Association).
