Konstantinos Papazekos

Hello, my name is Konstantinos Papazekos. I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA going to Pitt sports games. I come from a big Greek family, full of Pitt alumni. My family is from the mountains of central Greece. I gained an appreciation for handwork and being sustainable from my grandparents. As a lifelong Pittsburgher I am excited by the prospect of people coming to Pitt and bringing new ideas to my hometown. I have some Yinzer tendencies, like being loud about the Steelers and pronouncing some words a bit different. Some of my favorite things are soccer, art, and Pokémon. I also host a podcast in my free time. I can’t drive, so I’ll be able to tell you how long it takes to walk across the city.
