Yanni Kratsas


12 Jul 1974


Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA


Yanni Kratsas was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Due to his father being an officer in the United States Marine Corps, Yanni was raised in various cities around the world - mainly Athens, Greece and Tokyo, Japan.

Yanni was infatuated with television and film from a very young age. During his high school years, he attended a performing arts high school, CCPAC.

In 2001, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his passion of acting and writing, while landed roles on various television shows such as 'Weeds,' and 'Brotherhood.'

His parents never supported him in his efforts to work in the entertainment industry and they eventually went so far as to stop speaking with him, due to his pursuit of his passion. They have not spoken in years.

Yanni now focuses all of his efforts into writing and production. He started his first entertainment company, Hanna-Kratsas Entertainment with a focus on developing new projects of all budgets.

Yanni's first comedy feature, 'Shooting Puppies,' will be the first in a string of new films from Hanna-Kratsas Entertainment.
