About Mate Kava

Have you ever written your biography?

It’s damn hard to write! I feel I have lots of things to write some days, and feel have nothing to write the days after!
Today is the day that I feel I have nothing to write, so I’m just going to write only the topics which are related to my art life.
1980: I had born in Shiraz, Iran.
1993: I had studied child music (Orff).
1996: I had started to play classical guitar (I gave that up after 3 or 4 years).
1998: I had started to study avant-garde music composing in Iran (I gave that up after 4 or 5 years).
2005: I had published my first book, a collection of short stories (writing is the only thing that I have never given up yet).
2007: I had lived in Armenia.
2008: I had bought my first photo camera and started to do photography (I had been a part of a photo exhibition in CA, USA).
2009: I had started to write screenplay (I have had no success and I’m writing just for my movies now).
2010: I had bought my first video camcorder and started to produce some short conceptual and future documentary movies.
2012: I had lived in Turkey.
2014: I had join some film festivals in Belorussia, Cyprus and Greece.
2015: I had lived in the Philippines.
2016: I have started to produce my first TV travel show.
✈️  And about traveling….
I had left Shiraz for ever (the city that I had born in) when I was ONLY 2-month-old! And I have been in variety of places since then. But my first out-land travel had happened at 2002 and I spent the rest of my life at different countries up to now!
