Demonstration in Chicago
Welcome to my homepage. I have made this website to
chronicle my life. Some people have books written about
them, some people have movies made about them. Rather
than let someone else tell my story, I decided to tell
it myself. Within this website, you will see pictures
of my family, and learn about things that I have done.
Some of the sections are still under construction, so
come back to see the site as it develops over time.
Currently, the site includes sections on the things
that I am most proud of. The first section, however, is
a brief biography – a short glimpse into my past that
helps to explain where I come from – which helps to
explain where I am going to. The second section is the
Assyrian Martyr’s Monument. It is located in Chicago,
at Montrose Cemetery, and is dedicated to my father,
brother, and all Assyrians who have been killed because
they were simply Assyrian.
The third section is about the Assyrian Empire
Gallery. Over the years I have worked with various
academic institutions, supporting the research of
ancient Assyria. That support culminated in the
Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago naming
the Assyrian Empire Gallery in honor of myself and my
The fourth section is about the Mesopotamian Museum, a
project I started many years ago, after I had traveled
to Finland to attend my first conference of
Assyriologists. The museum, located in Chicago, is a
collection of works spanning the Ancient timeline of
Assyria. It is also has a conference center and there
are workshops, lectures, and distinguished speakers at
various times throughout the year.
