Nader Kuroush Parsia was born in Tehran, Kingdom of Iran in August of 1953 to a diplomat parent who served the Imperial Iranian Government. He is of the Zoroastrian faith.

He writes:

My father's last position was Ambassador. We lived in different nations in the Imperial Iranian Embassies assigned to different countries every 2 years for a 4 -year mission, and thus, I was exposed to various political, cultural traditions, and languages of many nations.  My Father spoke 9 languages.  I learned to speak 6 major languages (i.e. English, Russian, German, Italian, Afghan, and some Arabic), and of course, my mother language Parsi /Persian.  

From 1961-1965 we were stationed at Imperial Iranian Embassy in Moscow, U.S.S.R. where I attended a Russian school, but later I went to a prominent Anglo-America School in Moscow where I mastered English, and at age of 9,  I proved that the universe was expanding in my science class which impressed the school staff, U.S. & British Ambassadors and they decided to award me a big metal airplane model of Pan Am , and asked my parents to have me sent to the U.S. to be educated in Air & Space institutes which my parents refused since I was only 9 years old.

While my father was serving the Imperial Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and got stationed in Amman, Kingdom of Jordan in 1970 my parents sent me to boarding Alley International College (a branch of American University of Beirut, Lebanon ) from 1970 -72, but when Lebanon entered a bloody civil war, my father sent a special rescue force from the Imperial Iranian Embassy in Jordan who came to Beirut, Lebanon and returned me safely to Jordan to my parents, and then from there I was sent to my father's cousin in Salt Lake City, Utah where I attended Brighton High School to finish my 12th grade. While attending the high school I designed, built, and launched the biggest model rocket "Venus-3" and it climbed to an alt. of 10,000 ft. I was then admitted to Brigham Young University (B.Y.U.) in Provo, Utah where I majored in Mechanical Engineering. 

Since I had a burning passion for universe, space, to become an astronaut, aviation, and flying, I transferred to Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida in 1974. I remember that former President Ronald Reagan (who was on his presidential campaign 1976-77) visited our University, and gave a great speech at the student center where I got to meet and talk to him; then he went to Daytona Speed Race Track and gave the trophy to Richard Petty (the champion driver), and after a great party he returned to California.

In 1975 Imperial Iranian Air Force (IIAF) had purchased 80 F-14 Tomcats from Grumman Aircraft Mfg. I was one of several honored and lucky students to get into the IIAF training program, but unfortunately, the Revolution intervened. This tragedy led to annihilation of many Imperial Iranian Govt. officials and personnel. My father was captured and tortured for several years until we were able to rescue him and brought him to the U.S. in the 1990s.

From 1978 to 1981 many of us Persians where like chicken running around w/o heads in exile life style without a safe nation in which to reside. Under President Reagan many of us obtained political asylum and he stopped former President Carter's deportations of Iranians who were loyal to the U.S. & the Shah. 

Due to profound love, loyalty, and dedication towards my Motherland, the ancient Kingdom of Persia/Iran, I (like many other military personnel of Imperial Iranian Armed Forces ) could not tolerate seeing our beloved motherland being torn to bits, nor the slaughter of our people with daily executions carried out by Khomeini’s international terrorists, so I decided to join with some former Imperial Iranian Officials in who were in exile throughout Europe and helped to plot a coup d'etat in Iran to bring down terrorist Islamic Regime in Iran in the summer of 1980. I was one of the plotters and physical participant of this tragically failed coup attempt, which resulted in the capture of around 400+ top military officers. The majority of these fine men were slaughtered by evil Khomeini's and P.L.O. terrorist butchers. I miraculously managed to escape execution twice and, later on, three assassination attempts in Europe.

By the end of 1983, I was in Miami, FL. where I joined the U.S. Navy because they had F-14 Tomcat fighters and I desired to finish the aviator's training program I had begun with our IIAF in 1975. For safety reasons and because I am sworn to secrecy under oath, I will not disclose the nature of my final U.S. Navy duty. In early 1986 I ended my service and moved to Hawaii where I held different jobs, including parts in Magnum P.I. TV series with Tom Selleck, and did some modeling for Aloha Shirts. Later on, I founded my own Lilikoi Productions Inc. and produced "Healthy Cooking with Nanoa" and "Cooking Healthy with Nanoa" with OC 16 and Big Island TV networks (see the links in my www.mondopiatto.com). After 120 cooking show productions between Hawaii and California, I ended this adventure and went to Sardinia, Italy in 2013-2015 and taught Aviation English.

In 2016, I returned to Florida campaigned very hard for President Trump. So, here I/we are and still fighting the evil forces to free our planet from THE EVIL GLOBALISTS who are hard at work to enslave us all.

A former IIAF Cadet  and a retired U.S. Navy Veteran, Mr. Parsia joined AMCD in March 2021.
