Born in Athens Greece in a family active in the tourist & engineering sectors, I explored multicultural environments through traveling and working since a child, and discovered my life passion, Music. Music listening as well as participating in non-professional jazz and rock bands, trained me and opened me up a new pathway in approaching values as teamwork and continuous growth, to navigate successfully in the corporate world. At the same time, fascinated by social economy and the immense opportunities through which blockchain technology enables us to create a better world, I am enrolled in related on-line certification courses
