He has been a guest architectural critic for several architecture schools in Southern California including USC, Cal Poly Pomona and PCC’s school of architecture and environmental design.

Bahram is a master artist and his drawings and watercolors are extension of his personal design ideas and conviction expressed in abstract and concrete/natural forms. His work has been exhibited in Los Angeles Art Association and other galleries in greater southern California. Several of his drawings are currently part of private collections in US, Europe and Japan.

Alongside of his practice and art work, Bahram has been an educator since 1994 for various community colleges in the Los Angeles area. He was the Department Chair for the Architecture and Construction for the College of the Canyons from 2000 to 2003. Based on his professional real world experience, Los Angeles Valley College (LAVC) gave him the task of developing and obtaining approval for two new programs, one for Sustainable Construction Management and the other for Solar Energy Design and Management. Both programs received approval from the State of California and are currently taught providing the students with associate degrees.

Bahram is a well known expert of ancient and medieval coinage as it relates to the history of Persia and Near East. His contribution has been acknowledged by three European museums of Vienna, Paris and Berlin in their 7 volume publication “Sylloge Nummorum Sasanidarum” relating to Persian Sasanian Coinage of ancient and late antique era. His writing on the subject has been published In various journals including the prestigious “Oriental Numismatic Society” based in London.
