Born in Athens 1 Oct 1966, and I have been working in the field of Graphic Design and Advertising since 1985. From 1991, immediately after my MA in Applied Arts from Holland, I have been continuously working in Advertising.
Having the opportunity of working with some of the biggest advertising agencies in the Greek Market ( Ogilvy, DDB, BBDO) I was able to gain extremely valuable experiences, especially while I was working as Regional Creative Director for DDB South Central Europe for over three years.
I have traveled extensively in my region (Balkans, Ukraine, Russia and Croatia) where apart from controlling the international accounts of DDB which demanded consistency, I also trained the newly recruited staff of the creative departments and finally took part in many successful pitches within this area.
My experience and travels have made me extremely flexible in adjusting to different environments and easily adapting to new cultures. As I am of Greek origin on one hand, I am quite familiar with the Eastern way of life. On the other hand, I have a big input of Western way of thinking and creating as I have lived and studied in Holland, UK and Spain.
