Born in 1976 in Greece, I was a kid of the 80s Home Computer era owning Sinclair Spectrum, Atari ST and Amiga computers. That was when my interest in computer graphics began with Deluxe Paint and 3D Construction Kit. In 1992 I started working with 3D Studio (MS-DOS version), later with first versions of 3D MAX (Windows). I attended one of the first schools for 3D Graphics in Athens, Greece (1994-1997). From 1997 to 1999 I volunteered to serve my obligatory military service in Greek Special Forces as paratrooper. In 2000 I started freelancing in Athens as 3D Generalist doing 3D graphics and compositing using Alias|Wavefront Maya (v2.5) and Eyeon's Fusion on a Silicon Graphics 540 Visual Workstation. Since then I have worked on a big variety of projects, from 3D projection mappings, product and architectural visualization, 3D animated shorts, TV commercials, 3D tuition and video games, to which I have given emphasis the past 3-4 years of my career.
