Arman Irani

Editor-in-Chief, Dauntless

Arman Irani is just another fellow human. He’s admittedly a little bit nerdy. How nerdy? Well, why can you never trust an atom? Because they make everything up. lol He has a Bachelors degree in Nanotechnology.

Arman loves working out, cooking healthy, dressing up, traveling and he’s also a bit of a gamer. He has no qualms with moving in faith to new destinations and embarking on new adventures in life (as the phrase goes, you only live once!).

When it comes down to it, Arman believes life is short and hopes that you become inspired and believe in yourself to do the things that you want in this life and follow your calling.
