Arash Barmaan is the creator of BOOS application. A dating app for the Persian-Jewish community. He was born to middle eastern parents in Los Angeles. They wanted him to be a lawyer or an engineer in the future but Arash wanted to become a basketball player.
He had an interest in basketball and wanted to take it up as a career. He refined his basketball skills but was rejected out of his high school basketball team due to some racist political profiling reasons. He made it his goal to join the basketball team at Santa Monica College. He struggled and worked hard so that they will not have any reason to cut him out. When the time for tryouts came, there were hardly any spots left.
Many spots were reserved for the returning team and the recruits. Arash knew he was skilled and in the coming years, he decided on playing overseas and then transitioning to the NBA as it would increase his chances of joining a professional team. In the summer he came to the realization that the odds were not in his favor.
Considering his physical genetics and background, he would still not be very successful as all the well-known players and would be pretty banged up by the time he retired. Looking at all the different scenarios that could have taken place if he chose basketball as his career, he changed fields and pursued forward with his dream of becoming a CEO and creating an app.
Thus, he came up with a dating app, targeted to Persian-Jewish community. He is transferring to the University of Miami to complete his degree in sports administration to satisfy his parent’s wish for their son to complete his degree. He still hopes to join the NBA as a trainer and be closer to the dream he had since a very young age.
Unfortunately, things were not in his favor as all the odds were stacked up against him. From his genetic background to his origin, he would not be able to become a successful player. Even if he did, it would drain him out more and he would be banged up when he retires.
All these incidents took him in a new direction. Apart from being a basketball player, he wanted to become a CEO of a business. He thought and decided on an application. After some time, he came up with his own application, BOOS, which is an online dating app for the Persian-Jewish community. It worked out better for him. Although, he still wants to become an NBA trainer one day and fulfill his dream.
Arash is currently transferring to the University of Miami and will be completing his degree in sports administration. While maintaining his application alongside as well.
