I was born in 1978 in Athens, Greece, graduated from the German School of Athens (1996), and acquired my degrees in German Literature from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (2001), and in Classical Guitar from the Conservatoire “Rhythm” (2000). I then achieved my MA degree in Music Composition at the Anglia Polytechnic University in Cambidge, UK (2004), and my PhD degree in Electronic Music Composition at the Department of Music Studies of the Ionian University in Corfu, Greece (2016) focusing in my thesis on the development of audio games with an educational scope and music production capabilities. .
Currently I am conducting postdoctoral research in the field of Augmented Reality Audio Games at the Department of Audio & Visual Arts of the Ionian University investigating the development of audio game mechanics in an augmented reality environment, a research project co-founded by the EU (NSRF 2014-2020) and the Hellenic Republic Ministry of Development, Economy & Tourism. I have also been teaching at the same institution courses related to audio synthesis, such as "Digital Sound Processing", "Algorithmic Synthesis", "Music Software Design" and "Audio Technology in Art Education".
In the past I have designed and delivered numerous seminars and workshops on Sound Design and Electronic Music Composition at the Hellenic-American Educational Foundation (Athens College) and the Foundation for the Arts “Mikro Polytechnio”, as well as worked for over a decade as a composer in theatre and motion pictures productions, collaborating with directors such as Georgia Mavragani, Esther Andre Gonzales, Makis Papadimitratos, Kostas Zappas, Vicky Sachpazi, Takis Tzamargias and many more. I have also designed and implemented interactive audio installations that have been exhibited at international conferences and festivals, including Athens Science Festival, Design Walk Festival, Athens Digital Arts Festival, and Audiovisual Arts Festival, as well as music software and electronic audio games on behalf of institutions, such as the Ionian University and the Panhellenic Association of the Blind.
