Born in Athens , in 1982, but raised on Rhodes island, Greece, where youth was fun, school was boring and the local society too prosperous. On my 18th birthday I found myself studying at Brighton University, U.K. and though deeply in love with the my hometown I was glad to explore another culture. 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. Instead, I was happy to serve my will back to Rhodes. 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 felt the need to take up a profession related to social interaction. 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.
