I was raised in Greek immigrant family, in a quiet college town in southeastern Massachusetts that I always felt was too small for me. After a school trip to France and Spain, I decided that I wanted to spend my college years under a different piece of sky, exploring the beautiful cities and countries I had read and heard so much about. With a restless feeling in my belly and this unquenchable thirst for adventure, I moved to London. In my six years abroad, I had earned a BA degree specializing in physical and devised theatre, with training in Jazz singing, and masters in classical acting from one of England’s highly accredited drama schools. I had wandered eagerly around Europe, met some amazing, generous individuals from all around the world, and worked with fellow storytellers on some very innovative and thought provoking productions.
I had grown up a lot, and learned so many valuable lessons about myself, life and the world that cannot even begin to explain. However, after six years, it was time for another adventure and more lessons. I moved to New York City to continue my acting career, I have met more like hearted creatives, I've continued to learn and work on craft, and dabbled in writing and producing my own work. New York City has become my home and I am looking forward to what it has in store for me.
So far I have been lucky enough to work with some exciting theater companies as an actor and a playwright. I have had full-length and short plays produced in New York, California and the U.K. The first full-length play I had produced and co-wrote was an adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters called Steel Birds was nominated for two New York Innovative Theater Awards; Outstanding Original Full-Length Script and Outstanding Premiere Production of a Play. I am writing and producing for two podcast, a features writer for OnStage Blog, Literary Associate for Athena Theater and a resident actor with Infinite Variety Productions, traveling around the country telling stories. You can say I keep myself busy.
