Coming originally from the field of geopolitical research and analysis my involvement with screenwriting commenced in 2013 and following some courses and spec script I eventually wrote and completed my first short film as a writer and producer "Lucy" (2015, in Greek)) with a number of successes so far. I have just completed my commissioned feature script (First Draft) while I am looking for involvement in new projects by the end of 2017, incl. positions within Film & Doc research while I am currently commencing work on my first own feature script. Please note General Resume incl. research and publications available upon request.
