As a talented individual, I have always been immersed in the arts. Whether it is drawing or writing, my passion for both was unwavering. Graduating from the School of Visual Arts with a degree in Media Arts and a minor in Journalism, I was off and running. With the knowledge I garnered from the College I managed to create my own Public Relations business. When it comes to my writing I have been published in many online and print magazines. Since I come from a Greek background my first writing gig was with a major Greek publication entitled National Herald. The experience with this newspaper helped me branch out to others like it, like the Hellenic Times. Eventually, I decided to expand my skills to the mainstream market. Hence, I began submitting articles to online publications like, and In addition to all the press work, I have also penned my own novel “Destinies” which is currently available on Amazon and in working to go from script to screen. Besides that, I also just completed a historical overview of the Greek mafia worldwide which is also on Amazon along with my third book which I worked with ex-mobster John Alite called Prison Rules. In addition, I was featured as a mob expert on the cable channel REELZ for the program “Mafia Killers w/ Colin McLaren”. Even though I have made these strides with my God-given talent I am always in search of building more bridges. In the entertainment industry there are no limits to what one can accomplish.
