About 

I am a recent Architecture graduate  with a wide range of interests. i am very passionate about Architecture, theory and application. Interior designing is one of my special interests.

I have worked in architectural offices, in redesigning apartment interiors, as an architectural consultant for apartment renovations as well as an art exhibition for Mr Stavros Diakoumis, children's book and bedroom illustrator, and lastly as a  translator for various events and academic works. My experience also involves various architectural and art articles as well as interviews or reviews and participation in international architectural competitions.

My architectural interests evolve and specialize around "green" and nature inspired design as well as the contrast between natural and virtual reality, material and immaterial architecture, in theory and in practice.
