I live, study and work in London. I enjoy writing, reading about history and politics and walking around the city to take photographs with my Nikon.

Since the time of improvising shadow theatre performances as a child in my birth town Karpenisi, I have embraced a distinctive interest in the arts and culture not as the result of aesthetic practices but in the broadest sense of culture as a way of life. 

The politics of society and culture have also had a central role in my professional journey in affecting organisational cultures and addressing inequalities in a range of sectors (education, central and local governance, faith and charitable organisations). A social worker since 1999, I have been committed to the oath I gave the year I was graduated from the university; to treat people with respect and ‘selflessly and vigorously serve peace, democracy and social justice’. I have done the same in my subsequent postgraduate studies in Education and Cultural Studies.  

Within this context, I have completed a qualitative research with museum professionals, artists and young people in a local museum in England in 2017, and now I am writing my thesis on the cultural value of museums in youth work at Goldsmiths University of London.
