Born in 1969 in Kirksville, Missouri to a Cherokee mother and an Iranian father, Darius Radmanesh spent the first nine years of his life like any other precocious boy growing up in small town America. In 1978, Darius's father moved the family to Iran where their lives were forever changed by the Islamic Revolt of 1979. Raised as a Christian, Darius and his family endured appalling incidents inflicted by the Iranian government while dodging attacks from Iraqi bomber raids. At the age of sixteen, Darius was yanked off the street by members of the Iranian Islamic Guard (Hezbolah) and sent to the front lines to fight. With the assistance of an Iranian Major, Darius was able to elude his subjugators and escape into the mountains where he found refuge amongst the Qashqai nomads. Darius eventually linked up with the U.S. State Department and was smuggled out of Iran through the Persian Gulf, and on to Dubai and the American Consulate. From there, Darius returned to his American homeland, the boy now a war-wearied man. Darius is committed to raising awareness regarding the imminent global-threat posed by the corrupt, Iranian regime and the plight of the Iranian people. He currently resides in London with his wife and four-year-old son.
