Documentary filmmaker | Director | Editor

Freelance filmmaker, raised in the UK and based in Athens, Greece. I studied Theatre studies at the University of Patras, Greece, and have a first class honours degree in Film, from Edinburgh Napier University, where I specialized in documentary directing, editing and producing.

 

My primary interest are social documentaries and exploring the role of individuality in the context of social forms. This can be seen through my films, The Edge of Wastelands, a poetic short about a family that lives off-the-grid and Thank God it's Friday which explores the lives of five friends with mental disabilities.

Through my studies, I have travelled and worked on numerous international fiction and non-fiction projects as an editor, producer, sound recordist, sound designer,  and cinematographer. I also have experience in creating music videos, and am always keen on finding new projects and collaborating with musicians, filmmakers, researchers, documentarians, artists...
