From a small village in a remote region of North-Western Iran to San Francisco, by way of Iran, Vienna, Austria, and California, Atour Malko's career path has always been a meandering one. Immigrating to the United States at the age of forty with a few years of work experience and a high school diploma as his most significant achievements, Atour was on a rough start working jobs that were not to his liking.
