 About Me

Hailing from the sun-crushed plains of rural Greece’s Sparta of the 80s, my lifetime passion for immersive games led me to the chilly Nordic lands, where over the better part of the last decade, I enjoyed engaging in inventive and practical problem solving as a designer, be it of gameplay, level, narrative, or system design, and over time, have developed my skills and instincts to a point of solid confidence within my field.

 

Ever since I can remember, my main focus and interest has been in games with a strong atmospheric character and visceral game-feel, embedded in their holistic design. And unafraid of how much of a platitude it reads, ever since i learned how to make things happen by moving a gamepad stick instead of flipping a comic book page, I aimed to professionally craft the type of experiences that have made such a lasting impression on me, and helped shape me into the person I am today.
