Bio

Bruce Behrouz Bahmani has been a writer for Iranian.com since 1996. He lives and writes in the San Francisco Bay Area. Bruce was born in the Lubbock Texas in 1961 to an Iranian Father and German mother attending college as foreign students.

After graduation they moved to Iran when Bruce was 2, where he attended Parthian and Iranzamin bi-lingual schools in Tehran. After high school and barely getting the last Shah-era Diploma in 1979, Bruce moved to Utah for college. This is why he is the only Iranian who likes Mitt Romney. Ethnically 50% Ghashghai, 50% German/American, this now makes Bruce 50% Iranian, 50% American, and 100% confused.

Bruce has an interest in exploring Full-Anarchy as a possible viable governance system. Except for traffic signals, we still have to have traffic signals.

In 2005 Bruce co-created and wrote the first issue of the hugely successful, but financially disgraceful American comic book adaptation of "Rostam: Tales of the Shahnameh" and has been published in numerous magazines, books and internet sites. For free. Like all writers who do not get paid for writing, he is working on a novel, a screenplay, and the usual anthology of erotic semi-homosexual poetry.

He describes himself,

"If P. J. O'Rourke met Hunter S. Thompson and they were an old Gay couple with a San Francisco civil union signed by Gavin Newsom, and then they got Tom Robbins to donate the sperm, and had Janeane Garofalo carry it to term, and then if they raised that child by letting him run loose and wild in Tehran during the 70's. I guess I would pretty much be that baby."
