I was born and raised in Rethymno, a picturesque town on the north coast of Crete.
At Athens University I studied ancient Greek philosophy, a fascinating subject, but which I never used in my professional life. I was employed by a leading Greek bank for twenty years, the last six as a branch manager. I consider my involvement in tourism a challenge.
I hope to promote the beauty of Crete and I will meet people from a variety of countries and cultures who I will do my utmost to offer all the information necessary to make their holiday here an enjoyable and unforgettable experience.
I myself love travelling abroad. I have often been to many European cities. Travelling is enormously educational, as it gives you the opportunity to get to know the tradition and cuisines of different countries, as well as visiting important museums and art galleries. I also enjoy cooking. I invariably use organic products when cooking for my family.
I am a great admirer of the Greek poet Cavafy. My favourite poems are The City and the First Step!
Animals are a great weakness of mine. I have a 8-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, called Romeo, who is the reason I look at the values of life from a different perspective.
