I was born and raised in Aliveri on the island of Evia. I came to Athens in 1998 to study in the department of Oenology & Beverages Technology, TEI of Athens where I graduated in 2003. In my effort to get a comprehensive knowledge about wine at an International level, I studied in WSPC® acquiring the WSET® Diploma and I have now become a member of the Institute of Wines & Spirits. I have many years experience in the administration and general management of retail outlets as well as in the area of purchasing. Since June 2010 I have been working in the Greek WSET® UK centre in the WSPC®, holding the position of Examinations Officer & WSET® Diploma Coordinator.
