Born in Athens , in 1982, but raised on Rhodes island, Greece.
On my 18th birthday I found myself studying at Brighton University, U.K. and though deeply in love with my hometown I was glad to explore another culture. Studying for pleasure, travelling, attending rock gigs and exploring UK's Garage and Drum & Bass scene, all experiences that shaped me. I graduated as an Engineer and moved to Athens. Too loud and chaotic for my taste, I never engineered a way to fit in the big city lifestyle.
The summer of 03' felt like - and was indeed- a personal statement of independence. Somehow intrigued by uncertainty, l loved working as a waiter, delivery boy, cashier, bartender and being carefree. It was not long before I realized that circuits and cables didn't mean a lot to me.
I entered the University of the Aegean and graduated as a primary school teacher 3 years later. Wandered teaching on small Dodecanesian islands for a few years until a special girl holding a tangerine came my way. We ended up on board, taking a vow by the sunset and now sharing a life with a miraculous son.
