Hold Onto Dear Life
How we die
Ashkan grew up in the suburban land of Orange County, California playing soccer, skateboarding and drumming in a band fronted by his older brother. It wasn’t until college that he discovered a passion for filmmaking. It was there he entered and won a local PSA competition—his first foray into the world of commercials. After graduating from the film program at Brigham Young University, Ashkan worked on commercials as an assistant in Los Angeles while he continued to hone his craft and build his reel.
Since signing with Saint Cloud, Ashkan has done work for a number of brands including Sony, Delta, and Gold’s Gym. He’s become known as a visually engaging storyteller and strong collaborator.
Ashkan currently lives in Los Angeles, California with his wife and their 2 children.
