My favorite place: I love islands, especially those scattered in the Aegean and Ionian Seas!
My favorite song: Changes very often – probably something minimalist & electronic…
Three things I dislike: Ignorance, cynicism, fanaticism.

My greatest adventure: Starting my own business, mainly for creative freedom. It’s an adventure to experiment and play with opportunity and to be me in ways I’ve never been before. And it continues every day!
I think Europe’s biggest challenge is… related to climate change. From biodiversity and natural resource management, to health, education and equality, it’s not only making the current problems we face worse, but is creating new challenges for us.
My changemaker idol: Nikola Tesla (1856–1943). He’s contributions were not incremental – they were revolutionary!

My message to the EYA community:

“Life is short. Do stuff that matters!”
