“One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.”
– Helen Keller

Brimming with talent and personality, Chris hails from Jasper, Alberta, but spent much of his childhood in his parent’s native Greece, on the popular holiday island of Skiathos. Canadian born with European parents, Chris has had easy access to the world, which he has taken extensive advantage of.

As a young man, Chris traveled to England and began acting. While there he joined the Groundlings Shakespearean Theatre Company and attended classes at City Lit. Upon moving to Vancouver, he continued his training to grow as an artist. Chris’ passion for acting runs deep and he is a physical actor with fantastic impulses. Recently he has acted in a number of independent film projects, commercials and docudramas, which he loves as much as being on stage.

Chris holds an MBA from City University, London, and has a strong head for business. As well as being an actor, Chris works in the hospitality industry; something that Chris sees as a parallel with acting. To be a great bartender or bar manager, one has to be a good actor.

He is very excited to be part of the roster at da Costa Talent and is honored to be part of such a talented group of artists.
