I grew up in a family of travelling performers. We were always on the road singing, dancing, doing acrobatics,
doing magic tricks or whatever the crowds would enjoy. As the last of eight children, I was pampered and made a fuss
over. I truly enjoyed my role as the center of any performance!
Everything was a family project, making up the performances, writing new songs and music, sewing the costumes, even doing
chores. Everything became a fun game...if we had to wash dishes, it would end up being a juggling challenge, if we had
to gather firewood it would become a game to see who could pick up the sticks in the most original way.
I had a wonderful childhood, but as I grew older I started to feel the need to settle down in one spot. As much
as I loved my family, I came to crave a settled home of my own. I decided to set up my own performing business in Athens.
Where could there be a better place? Athens was the center of culture and learning.
I bought a small cottage near Athens and settled in for a life of performing for the same audience night after night.
