Abdi Nazemian was born in Tehran and has lived in Paris, Toronto, New York, Rome, and… um… Scarsdale. He is now an LA-based screenwriter, director, and producer who is proud to say his words have been spoken by the likes of The Nanny and Carmela Soprano. Being restless and easily bored, he thought it would be a good idea to add father of twins, MBA student, and web series critic to his résumé. Abdi is not the inspiration for Madonna’s children’s book “The Adventures of Abdi,” though the illustrations do look suspiciously like him. Follow him @abdaddy
