Music Journalist / Radio Producer - Kosmos 93.6

Journalist, writer, radio producer.

Born and raised in Athens Greece. 

I studied literature and got my degree from the Kapodistriakon University of Athens. 
As writing was my passion, I entered a competition that got me, as an award, my dream job- working for a newspaper. It was the major daily newspaper Ta Nea.  

Being a fan of music and culture, very soon gave me the opportunity to be at the Culture section of the newspaper, mainly as music editor for a long period of time, during which, among other things, I had the chance to interview artists and personalities from Greece and abroad.  While also, worked on television, various other publications and sites.

I have published books, both on music and fiction (Drive In, a collection of short stories).

Currently I am writing for the Rolling Stone Greece magazine. And presenting “Fresh Unlimited”, a two hour radio show every Saturday (20:00- 22:00) on Kosmos 93.6  (www.kosmosradio.gr) focusing on new music.

Moreover, over the years, I have covered /participated on International Music Conferences- Midem, Amsterdam Dance Event, Red Bull Music Academy,  etc.  And film festivals, like the International Thessaloniki Film Festival and International Documentary Festival.
