Photography – San Francisco
Co-Founder of Figure It Out Productions with his friend Spencer, the production studio they created to produce content, Demetri is a man of many talents. He is always looking for any time or way that he can express himself creatively. Not only does he have his own podcast, “Ok, Bet!”, he also Co-Hosts “Voices of Reason” & “Blockbusters & Chart-toppers” with his production partner, Spencer. From hosting three podcasts, to starting a blog, to being a photographer and painter Demetri seems to have his hands full. Hailing from a family of artists (His grandmother was a ceramic artist. His aunt is a visual artist. His uncle is an art collector; and his mother writes poetry.), his passion for art bled through many generations. Though Demetri is a natural born artist, his journey into the arts began when he was deprived of his first passion: basketball. Though his injury pulled him off of the court, Demetri entered his senior year with a newfound curiosity and admiration for photography. Since then Demetri has fallen in love with all things art and has had the pleasure of being displayed in a variety of shows such as Pancakes & Booze, RAW Artist Showcase, to being selected out of 17,000 submissions in the Arts Guild of Sonoma Yearly art gallery in 2018. Demetri is a Dilettante. As a photographer he aims to capture the pure moments as he calls them. Those moments that when captured will always take you to a place of nostalgia, a place close to one's heart. With his paintings he hopes to create fun interactive pieces that dive into the imagination of the viewer. With podcasting he amplifies untold stories of himself and his people. His blog invites us into the most vulnerable areas of his heart, which reflect his own struggles, success and how they have gotten him to where he is today.
