Born in Athens, Greece. Initially studied Economics (B.Sc, 1996-2000) and Statistics (M.Sc., 2000-2003) in Athens by accident, Music and Music Technology (B.Arts, 2003-2006) in Cambridge and completed a PhD in Electroacoustic Composition (2010) at the Sonic Arts Research Centre in Northern Ireland.

I’ve written music for instrumental ensembles, fixed & mixed media, live electronics, the network, for images and the theatre. My works have been performed throughout Europe, in the US and Latin America and some have received awards and distinctions at international competitions.

Between 2007-2010 I was a teaching assistant at Queen’s University; I lectured for a year at the Technological Institute of Crete before joining Bournemouth University as a lecturer in Music & Audio Technology (2012-2014).

I like cats, sea, pasta, Easter, SuperCollider, ears (these with no particular order) and other stuff as well.

In the past I’ve been lucky to receive the McLeod Prize from Anglia Ruskin University and my PhD research to be funded by the Department for Employment & Learning.
