I was born in Athens, Greece, about when rock 'n' roll legends Motörhead had started storming the world music scene. The passing of Lemmy Kilmister on 28 December 2015 signifies for me the end of rock 'n' roll era and music as it should always have been. Raucous, gritty, outlaw.
A rebel and free-spirited pupil, and always a renegade at heart, I decided to study Industrial Management (BSc), Fiction Film Production & Moving Image (MA), and Cognitive Narrative Theory & Narratology (PhD) at the University of Birmingham. My monograph is published by Rowman & Littlefield: Lexington Books.
I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) in the UK, and have been Visiting Lecturer at the University of Birmingham, the Central Film School London and the Henley Business School of the University of Reading, and a Lecturer in Creative Industries at GSM London/University of Plymouth. Currently, I'm Visiting Lecturer in Screenwriting at the American College of Greece (Deree).
I irreversibly fell in love with movies at the age of 4 when my father took me to the cinema for the first time. I'm an ardent book reader, a strategy video-game enthusiast, a science buff, an impenitent rock 'n' roll man, and an eternal film fanatic. My heroes can be found in the sciences, philosophy, arts, literature, movies and rock 'n' röll music.
My concept sci-fi short film AUTONOMOUS has won numerous commendations in film festivals around the world. With more than 500,000 views on YouTube and another 155,000 for its Russian-dubbed version, it's being developed into a feature film. My crime/drama/thriller screenplay BLACK EQUINOX placed as top-30 finalist in the Scriptapalooza Screenplay Competition 2019 and is in the top-15 of The Red List thrillers. It's currently being packaged for my directorial debut.
