Nathan Ferrari was born in Northern Italy in a city named Milan. When he was young, his family became very poor and were no longer able to keep their home in Italy so they took the soonest ship to the United States of America. Nathan learned to speak fluent English while he was in the United States and his parents taught him a few Italian words here and there but wanted him to embrace the culture around him. Nathan completed High school in Michigan and went on to work construction in Michigan. However, Nathan wanted to get a sense of why his family decided to come to the United States while he was so young. Nathan decided to quit his job in construction and move back to Italy where he got a job on a cargo ship that delivered cargo to various ports around the Mediterranian Sea and the Black Sea. He worked there for 9 years until one day the captain of the cargo ship he was on got a little too close to the shore of Chernaurus in the Black Sea and had to ditch the cargo ship into the shore. The cargo ship was torn in half and cargo containers were flung everywhere. Nathan was lucky to survive but he would not have even predicted what his life would be like after that.
