Ali Poursmadi originally hails from Iran. He left for the United States in 2010 to seek a brighter future in the birthplace of computer animation. Coming from the Middle East, Ali has experienced both opposing world views of East and West. Mainly self-taught in Information Technology and Computer Animation, Ali has worked in those fields for several years. He joined First Person in the summer of 2013 and has proven to be a valuable asset to the company.
An efficient, hard working, soft-spoken IT professional, he has never raised his voice to those in need of his expertise. He got married last year while his wife was in Italy and the ceremony was performed from Iran over the telephone. In his spare time, aside from answering to his wife’s whims, he likes to read. Ali’s primary passion is, you guessed it, computers.
