Short biography
As a German-Greek photographer and translator/editor, I am based in Athens, and have worked extensively for the international press as well as documenting a variety of social events, participated in co-organized exhibitions and festivals (the 4daysstand-Queer-Festival in Athens, a culture event that I participated in organizing together with a team).

My professional experience of 7 years in London and 10 years in Athens gave me the opportunity to strengthen my creativity and communication skills, as I was responsible for coordinating many different social groups such as artists, locals and journalists contributing also, with artistic experience and functioning as a bridge between them, through my fluency in German, Greek and the English language.

Being a photographer further enhanced this experience and allowed me to contribute to public understanding of changes, by observing how people react in the long term under the pressure of a crisis, as seen through the eyes of an artist.

Personal profile
Photographer with graphic design – photography studies. Ten years of work experience with own clients. High
capability of creative thinking. Organisation: My experience as a professional photographer working with highly
demanding clients has provided me with the following organisational skills: work without delay and meet
deadlines punctually. Personal Initiative: although being a team worker, I have the ability to improvise, thus
performing effectively under pressure and acting quickly on location – however, always completing the
assignment by adding my professional and artistic touch to the final product.
My commitment: my aim is to provide quality services, through close communication with my clients and
understanding their needs, in order to achieve the desired result.
