“I learn from everyone I encounter. I love asking an open-ended question such as “Do you enjoy what you do?” and watching people take their answer toward what they are most passionate about or what they wish they could accomplish. Every conversation is an opportunity to learn something new as long as you listen to the person’s soul.”
Since 2001, Dimitri has worked at Columbia College Chicago, Youth Speaks, Bay Area Video Coalition, Mill Valley Film Festival, SF Sketchfest, Illinois Leadership Seminars and Free Spirit Media, where he learned how to breakdown, organize and produce projects of all types.
