He is a world travelling Cypriot passionate about nature and cultural heritage.

He has been involved in ventures related to nature and cultural heritage of Cyprus since 2002, starting with the designing and developing of a popular trilingual (English, Greek, Turkish) website focused on the nature of Cyprus.

He offers services to independent self-guided walkers and organises and guides walking trips for visitors and residents and coastal sea exploration expeditions on Waterbikes.

He is the author of the books 'Guide on Nature of Cyprus' (2009) and 'Exploring Authentic Cyprus' (2015).

He has a professional minibus driving licence and a First Aid licence. He is a diver since the late 80s and has a motorboat licence for more than a decade. He is involved in Cyprus coastal sea exploration since the late 90s.

He is seriously involved in photography and videography for more than 10 years (shooting tens of thousands of photos and producing tens of video clips). He has been involved in designing many walking routes around Cyprus, as well as in the production and the promotion of relevant maps, websites, brochures and videoclips. He is into wine and attended winetasting as well as winemaking courses.
