Biographical Information

On the last day of 1979 I was born in Athens where my family still lives. The last twelve years have been devoted to studying tourism with the exception of a fairly informative one-year interval under the guidance of an Egyptian tour operator in Athens. Since the end of 2004, I have moved to the UK to expand my academic knowledge on tourism development and planning, and seek some answers about tourism politics in Athens. If not for anything else, however, I appreciate these last few years especially for learning a bit more about the fine arts and admiring masterpieces such as the landscapes of J.M.W Turner.
