Interview with Adib Khorram, author of Darius The Great is Not Okay

I was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Design & Technical Theater (Emphasis in Lighting Design) from Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville. Following that I attended Vancouver Film School and found out I didn’t like making movies very much.

Now I live in Kansas City, where I write books. During the day I work as a graphic designer, videographer, projectionist, and more for live events in and around the Kansas City area and nationwide.
