My passion for nature starts early at child age. Born in 1988 on a village at the heart of Pindus mountains, in Central Greece ,loving mountains was one way for me. When I finished my studies, as a educator of mechanical engineering in the city of Athens ,I got involved with several mountain clubs of Greece following them to expeditions around Greek nature. In 2016 attend a series of winter mountain school and educated on the field of mountaineering by two of the most experienced Greek alpinists . At the same time I worked as a hiking guide with ‘Trekking Hellas’ company for two years. From 2018 I am working as a hiking guide for check in Creta travel agency based in Rethimno sity/ Crete island.Getting better, as a person and as a climber, throw the years is my only goal!
