I count more than twenty years as a professional in the built environment sector. I have worked across a variety of projects, initially as a designer, shifting later to construction and, subsequently, to managing and leading multidisciplinary teams & projects, internationally.
In 2005 I founded my own practice and worked as a consultant and project manager with international teams, acquiring a wealth of experience in cross-cultural environments. I have been involved in a wide range of projects; from new-builds and mixed-used developments to the renovation and retrofit of heritage buildings, and from mega-projects to large-scale civil infrastructure. I offer my built environment expertise as a consultant to companies or indiviudals, managing their construction projects or optimising their built assets.
I am a strong advocate of the digitalization of the Architectural, Engineering and Construction Industry (AEC). As such, I am providing consulting for the implementation of BIM and IT solutions to businesses of the sector (developers, contractors and clients). Within this context, I have participated in numerous committees and workgroups, promoting the digitisation of the industry, while I perform independent research. In 2014 and having identified a gap in the Facility Management of niche holiday residencies in Greece, I developed a cloud-based application and co-founded a start-up, offering FM services to holiday home-owners.
I am passionate about good architecture, built heritage and its reuse.I hold a certificate for the 3D survey of buildings and monuments by the Institute of Continuing Education of the Technical Chamber of Greece and I have completed the RIBA Advanced Conservation Course. In 2012 I developed an augmented reality application to record the heritage buildings of Athens (listed and non-listed) and in 2013 I had the opportunity to publish a part of my work in The Journal of Modern Greek Studies by the Johns Hopkins University Press.
I am writing and publishing articles regarding my research interests in the Greek press and online.
I am curious about (almost) everything! I love sketching and writing about the world, playing music and learning languages. I have an ever-expanding list of interesting things “to-do” and I love travelling for work or pleasure with my wife, Iro, a psychoanalyst.
