I am a filmmaker, writer and editor.
I am currently directing Κάτι Υπερβατικό (Beyond the Personal), my second feature-length documentary and interactive cross-media project about the international creative collaboration at Labyrinth Musical Workshop, right on the fold of Mediterranean and Middle East.
In 2014 my first feature documentary THE ISLAND BUS premiered, the surprising and warmhearted story of a refugee boy from Afghanistan discovering a new home in the small community of the Greek island of Tilos. I was co-director and supervising editor on the web documentary series DREAM JOB, produced by NYC-based Catalysta, directed reports for Metropolis TV/VPRO, music and dance videos, commercials, short fiction films, and concert videos.
I regularly coordinate as a location researcher and production coordinator for international film and TV productions in Greece. Among our clients are Bollywood music production industry leader T-Series, German TV channel ProSiebenSat.1, Aurinko/Finnair and NN.
I believe in creating work that inspires and uplifts us to be happier and more fulfilled human beings, creating a kinder society for everyone. As a personal focal point and resource for like-minded creatives, I started The Happy Filmmaker Blog: a collection of tools and thoughts to help us be exactly that - happy filmmakers.
Enjoy your discoveries!
