A self-proclaimed audio and videophile, Shadi is at the center of the convergence of technology and design which allows for an increasingly democratized digital world. He addresses issues of mobility, efficiency, and elegance and explores new ways of conceiving and realizing the environments where we live, work, and play. First-person observation and Shadi's own words shed light on an architect whose visionary work is defining new ways for consumers to integrate digital technology into their homes.

Farshad "Shadi" Shahrokhi trained in sculpture and film-making at the school of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston before completing an undergraduate degree in Architecture at Sci-Arc. He holds a Masters in Architecture from Columbia University. His work has been published and exhibited throughout the U.S.

Mr. Shahrokhi formed SHAdi + company in 1997, a design/build studio with an emphasis on high-end, modern, total design. Shadi being an avid audiophile/videophile, Trak-kit was a result of his interest in helping architectural clients choose and install audio/video centers within the spaces he designed.
