Born on December 13, 1992, in Thessaloniki, Greece. The eldest of three brothers. I hold a BSc in Computer Science (2014, highest honors) and a MA in 3D Computer Animation (2017, distinction). From 2014 to 2016 I fulfilled my compulsory military service as 2nd Lieutenant Reserve.
I have always been in a love triangle with Drawing & Programming. Due to the first I have been a cartoonist, sketch artist, illustrator and painter since before I can remember. Regarding the second, well, there is no programming without a true drive for mathematics and algorithmics. If I had to choose, I’d say I’m more of an RnD developer (using maths to do fancy things with programming is my thing) but I enjoy developing tools, apps, systems & other types of programming as well. The two were merged together recently, so I began employing my tech skills for self-expression and became an Animator and Computer Graphics Generalist.
For me, none of the above are mutually exclusive. I don’t exactly know how to combine all of them as a profession, but ultimately, I want to promote great ideas through animation and utilize science & technology during the process. Hence, my broader scope lies in entertainment and education.
Currently I am an Assistant Technical Director at DNEG (Double Negative).
My interests span the fields of Animation (both 2D and 3D), Sketching, Sculpting, Caricatures, Comics, Illustration, 3D Printing, CAD, Programming, e-Learning, Android & Web Development, Graphics, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Signal Processing, Mathematics, Economics, Philosophy, Music Composition & Production.
Football, judo, comics, chess, music composition, piano performance
