Biography

With a background in architecture, I decided to expand my fields of interest into the more broad and inclusive field of Cultural Studies. 

I was born and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece's second largest city with a significant cultural and social history during the past two centuries. After completing my studies in Architectural Engineering, I decided to move to England in order to purusit a Master of Arts in Urban Design. The course intrigued me to embrace a whole new world and perspective in critical subjects, eiter related  to architecture or not. 

Consequently, my previous experience helped me make the decision that led me here today. 

I have been engaged with certain architectural competitions in the past, as well as conferences, voluntary work outside Europe (Taiwan), photography and music.
