Today we’d like to introduce you to Mahsa Page.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I was raised in Tehran by artistic, socially flamboyant parents reveling in the emergent creative freedoms, permeated with Iranian, European, and American music from the ’60s and ’70s. My playgrounds were the busy streets and lively homes of broad-minded artists, talented musicians, and ambitious revolutionaries. An interesting, dynamic group of liberal thinkers and dreamers, influenced by politics, poetry and literature and open to all possibilities in life.
A palpable sense of tension was never far away, often welling up in the form of civic protests and conflicts with authorities, of opportunities dreamt of, and lost. As I grew into my young adulthood and completed my collegiate studies in Iran, America became the focus of my next ambitions. My mother had studied journalism at Berkeley University in the late ’70s, and brought back amazing stories of life in one of America’s most progressive cities.
1994 presented an opportunity for me to leave Iran and move to the USA. After enjoying some time first living in Hawaii and San Francisco, I ended up in Phoenix. Arizona has been good for me; it brought me a life opportunity that I was always dreaming of. Here I began working in the interior design industry with other talented people, learning the culture and language and appreciating the newfound freedoms unlocking new doors that would otherwise have been closed. The highlight of this journey was meeting my soul mate, Jeff Page, at the Marshall Art Gallery at Scottsdale’s Thursday Night Artwalk in 2001. Soon after I joined his architectural company, got married in Spain and have since shared a wonderful, synergistic creative life, traveling and having fun.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I like to call them ‘Gifts from the Unknown’ although they often come disguised as dreadful challenges! On a grand scale, life is a game; you arrive, participate, and try to give your best performance and leave a worthy legacy.
Saying that riding a smooth path seems not to be in my cards- I have experienced a full-blown political revolution, a devastating 10-year county war, and moving at a young age from my home country to experience a new life on a different continent. Still, to this day, there are multiple challenges and solutions, and I have been grateful for every experience, good, bad, and ugly- It has made my resolve stronger… So bring it on!
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about SpaceLineDesign Architects & Interiors – what should we know?
I am a conceptual interior and fashion designer, a new age digital artist creating first virtual and then built spaces for our architectural clients locally and internationally. We embrace all latest technologies for design and communicating of ideas and are amongst the first to use immersive 3D-Virtual Reality presentations, allowing our clients to fully experience and understand the dynamics of their new space before it’s ever built. We create modern residential and commercial designs and have been lucky to reside in Dubai for eight years, where we were involved with super-fast paced, luxurious design projects, and an intriguing multicultural work and living experience. Today, Phoenix is once again our home city, and we are enjoying the new challenges and opportunities that this fantastic city has to offer.
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Phoenix by far, is one of the best places for small business. It’s manageable, it’s reasonable, and it’s small business friendly. So what is not to like?
