I’ve been horribly guilty of not updating this space. A lot has happened since the last post, and I won’t try to cover everything now. But here’s the latest… Eclipses Group Theater NY’s Hercules: In Search of a Hero, conceived and directed by Ioanna Katsarou, and translated, co-produced and co-starring yours truly, performed at Abrons Arts […]

Demetri studied mathematics and theater at Swarthmore College and Villanova University, piano and music theory and harmony at Athens Conservatory, Commedia dell’Arte with Antonio Fava, neutral mask, clown and bouffon with Sarah Sanford and Giovanni Fusetti, and classical voice with Julian Rodescu. He speaks English and Greek fluently, intermediate French and Italian, and Ancient Greek.
Demetri is an avid runner. He used to run fast; now he runs far.
It’s been a busy summer: In June, I shot an episode of The Haunting Of. Air date TBD.
