Biography

Greg Yaitanes is an American television and film director. He is also an angel investor in Twitter. Emmy Award-winning television and film director Greg Yaitanes is one of the most recognized names in Hollywood, directing and producing top shows including Damages, Lost, Prison Break, Heroes and Grey's Anatomy. His Emmy Award came in 2008 as result of his work on House, M.D., the most popular show worldwide. Yaitanes grew up in Wellesley, Massachusetts, where he directed his very first film, Salad Bar: The Movie. At the age of 18, Yaitanes moved to Los Angeles and attended the University of Southern California Film School. By 23, he landed his first directorial job. Yaitanes was so persistent that he once waited seven hours for a 10-minute meeting with action film producer Joel Silver. After screening Yaitanes' work, Silver signed him for his second feature. Since then, Yaitanes' artistic talent and dedication have led him to a successful career in the director's chair in television. Though he is well known in Hollywood for his work on several top-watched shows, his technological entrepreneurship has also made him a respected name in Silicon Valley. His investments in start-up companies such as Twitter have earned him a reputation for foresight in technology.

Active in the Greek community, Yaitanes helped produce Greek America Foundation's Gabby Awards and directed the opening of the 2011 Gabby Awards on Ellis Island.
