My Life

I was born on September 24, 1962, in Athens, Greece. From an early age I exhibited a keen aptitude and interest in history. My talents were first recognized in 1980 during my senior year at the Institute Chateaubriand in Cannes, France where I was granted the Leonardo da Vinci prize for high achievement in the subject of history from the mayor. I went on to obtain my undergraduate arts degree in May 1985 and my Ph.D. on September 24, 2001 from the Department of Educational and Counseling Psychology at the University of British Columbia, where I specialized on the cognitive and linguistic processes of Persian speakers.

I work as a counselor at Langara College in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

As a result of my life experience, education, and studies of linguistics, I now speak English, German, French and Persian. I also have a working understanding of at least three living languages, Provincial Italian, Dutch and Kurmanji Kurdish, and two ancient languages of Latin and Pahlavi. I also lived in and traveled to several countries, including Germany, England, Belgium, Italy, Russia, Canada and Iran.

My Works

I have been writing since the early 1990's and had contributed articles to internationally recognized academic journals such as the International Journal of the Sociology of Language, and chapters for books such as the International Book of Dyslexia: A Cross-Language Comparison and Practice Guide (Wiley, 2004):

Farrokh, K. (2004). Dyslexia in Persian. In I. Smythe, J. Everatt, & R. Salter, (Ed.s), International Book of Dyslexia: A Cross Language Comparison and Practice Guide (pp. 73-79). John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

I have written articles on hardcopy and online publications.

I have lectured at the University of British Columbia's Persian Legacy series and have provided seminars at Stanford University’s WAIS (World Association of International Studies) conference. I am now a member of WAIS.

The History Channel has interviewed and filmed me on the topic of technology in ancient Persia. I have participated as an advisor for the making of the history channel special series “Engineering an Empire” the “Persians” episode which was about the engineering wonders of the Persian Empire I have been also interviewed by various television stations and other media.

I serve as a member of the Persian Gulf Preservation Society.

I have written a number of linguistics and historical articles and papers which you can read a selection of them in IPC.


I have also written various books on the subject of military history and history of Iran.

  • Pan-Turanianism Takes Aim at Azerbaijan: A Geopolitical Agenda

I was to have the above book published as a comprehensive textbook, however decided to forego print publication and post the entire text (along with 300 rare photos) for free on the Internet.
