A native New Yorker, I visited my father's birthplace on the island of Kythera as a young man, and decided to stay. I am a painter, and have made the island landscape and architecture the exclusive subject of my work, which I showed in my gallery on the island for over 20 years. I have renovated four houses in the remote farming village of Kypriotianika, always executed with respect for traditional building techniques and dedication to retaining the original character of each house. The most recent of these renovations is now available for my guests through AirBnB.
