Angelo Sotira Net Worth $75 Million
Angelo Sotira was born in Greece, but currently he lives in Hollywood, California, after moving from Greece with his family when he was little kid, initially to Virginia. Angelo started his career when he was only 15 years old, when he established Dimension Music which, is a music file-sharing site, and which he later sold to ex-Disney employee Michael Ovitz who was interested by this site once it was launched. His net worth rose impressively with this deal, but for the next two years, Angelo Sotira worked and learned at the investment part of Ovitz’s Artist Management Group & Lynx Technology Group, advising on the possibilities of strategic integration of the increasing number of applications on the internet. This experience convinced him that he didn’t need to go to college.
In the year 2000, Sotira launched the most remarkable work in his career up to now, DeviantArt, an online community sharing site and social network which he co-founded with Scott Jarkoff and Matthew Stephens, like-minded soul-mates who saw the potential. Sotira is the co-founder and CEO of DeviantArt which now has over 25 million users, artists and collaborators. Users on the site are able to sign up for free accounts with a personal profile and have space to post art work; also users can chat, message and comment on art. DeviantArt contain different kinds of art from photography to painting to collages of realism, abstract, still life, portrait and anima art. Around 155,000 art submissions, or “deviations,” are uploaded daily, with 2.4 million unique visitors posting 1.5 million comments every day. A mobile application has been launched, suitable for both IOS and Android. Clearly Angelo Sotira’s net worth is very likely to continue to rise.
Sotira also maintains his broader interests in the IT world – in a recent interview he declared his admiration for Travis Kalanick and Garrett Camp who created Uber, the expanding transportation community company application and website; also he is big fan of the work of Evan Williams who created Blogger and Twitter.
In his personal life, Angelo Sotira dated the American actress Janina Gavankar for five years, but is still single. An important part of both sides of his life now is drawing.
