Meet The Guys @ DCGreeks.com
Hi, my name is Themistocles Chronis, one of The Guys @ DCGreeks.com. With my brother, Aristotelis, we created DCGreeks.com with the simple goal of uniting the young Greeks in the DC metropolitan area. Born in Northern Virginia, a life-long member of the St. Katherine’s community, and an '86 graduate of its Greek School, I left the area after high school to attend the University of Virginia. After graduating from U.Va.'s Commerce school with degrees in Finance and Marketing, I started working at an up-and-coming dot-com called Telebank, which became a key component of the E*TRADE Financial family of companies. My e-commerce background combined with my love of the Greek community led me to start the site.
Over the last year and a half, you may recognize me from such events as Greek Nights, Third Thursdays, and church festivals. It has been my pleasure meeting and photographing all the beautiful people in the Greek community. If I fail to meet you at a Greek Event, please do not hesitate to introduce yourself.
Hey, my name is Aristotelis Chronis, the other Guy @ DCGreeks.com. While I originally came up with the idea for DCGreeks.com a couple of years ago, it would have stayed on the drawing board without the long hours and hard work put in by my brother, Themistocles. While spending seven years at the University of Virginia for both my undergraduate and graduate studies, I had a chance to meet a lot of Greeks from other parts of Virginia, Maryland and the East Coast who knew how to be Greek without being a stereotype. I always knew I would come back to the D.C. area after school, so I started slowly meeting more young Greeks in the area whenever I was back in town on weekends and during the summers. If my brother and I look familiar to you, it's because you've seen at least one of us at most every Greek Night and Greek Festival since the Millennium. I hope this site provides a fresh prospective on what it means to be young and Greek in the National Capital area.
