Tell us a little bit about yourself!
I am a second generation Greek American based in Boston Massachusetts. I have worked in the internet marketing industry for over 20 years in my professional career. Since 2005, I have owned a full service Search Engine Optimization (SEO) agency in Boston. In 2014 my wife Tanya and I took over and totally re-launched the very popular Greek website, GreekBoston.com
What makes you most proud to call yourself Greek?
I love every part of our Greek heritage, history and culture. I am the most proud to say I am Greek since the majority of everything we see in modern life (from medicine, math, science, democracy, etc) all truly comes from or has been influenced by the ancient Greeks. This is truly amazing to me.
What inspired you to make something ‘Greek’ your business?
GreekBoston.com was started in 1998 to connect local Greeks in the Boston Massachusetts and New England areas. My wife and I met in 2003 through one of the GreekBoston.com local Greek events so we both are deeply connected to the website. In 2014, we had an opportunity to purchase GreekBoston.com and have been able since then to elevate the brand an website as one of the oldest and most visited websites in English about all things Greek in the world. We have a local Greek section for Greeks in New England and thousands of informational articles and other content about Greek history, travel, food, traditions, music and much more. I recommend all Greeks (and non-Greeks that are interested!) visit: https://www.greekboston.com/
What are you most proud of on GreekBoston.com?
I am proud of every part of the website. We built GreekBoston.com to educate Greeks and non-Greeks of all ages about all aspects of Greek culture. It is something I feel that future generations of English speaking Greeks (1st, 2nd, 3rd generation Greeks) will use for decades to come.
Where do you see your Greek brand going into the future?
The future of GreekBoston.com is to continue to offer content that helps educate people about the Greek and Hellenic culture.
How often do you get to take the family to Greece?
My wife and 2 sons take annual trips to Greece each Summer. We visit family and always try to see a new island each year.
What is something you’d like to share about yourself that we may not know!?
My friends and family know I am a die hard Red Sox fan (yes, some Greeks love baseball!). Other than family and work the Red Sox are my number one hobby.
Thanks for your time Nick, I look forward to working on GreekPosts together!
