Navid Derakhshan



The Outdoor Makeover & Living Spaces team is led by an incredible visionary and a uniquely talented and highly-trained Emory biologist, Navid Derakhshan. He was raised with an entrepreneurial mentality and started working three days after moving to Atlanta. Navid worked long hours, and studied even harder. It finally paid off when he was accepted to his favorite institute: Emory University. He had two priorities: make a name for himself at his institution, and perpetuate the companies that he and his family worked so hard to grow. With strategies and proper planning, he excelled in both. Navid graduated in the 96th percentile from Emory.

After graduating, Navid decided to go back to what he was best at: designing outdoor spaces. With full time attention to the outdoor makeover business, Navid and his brother Omid revamped the company with many new systems for organization and success, great employees with creative minds and years of experience, and competitive pricing. Their fruit has yielded countless happy clients with amazing outdoor spaces.
