tl;dr


NOMAD
Roaming around with my laptop.
Burning through crypto inv earnings to to build profitable products that can make this lifestyle sustainable for my future family and I.

GENERALIST LIFE
Believer in a generalist(80%) approach to work and life.
Not great at anything but above average at many.
Combining them is my edge.

PRODUCT X EDTECH
Worked in aerospace, VC, doughnuts, blockchain, fintech, APIs and marketplaces.
Dropped a career as a product manager to build dark matter.

I want to help build the future of adult lifelong learning.

THE GOOD LIFE
Slow, quiet, simple life.
Love good food.

Allergic to rules, norms and immorality.
Value most: freedom.






(long version)


Born in Cyprus.
A little rebel -and huge pain in the ass-. High marks + low behaviour scores. Cared more about hobbies & athletics than academics.
Consumed by tech through PC magazines and video games and decided to study engineering.
Started bodybuilding. Never stopped.
Hated maths and physics until they clicked and then fell in love with them.
Skydiving license.
4 years at the Aerospace Eng dept of Imperial College London.
Discovered Design though the RCA and transitioned from science to eng design.
Traveled to Ghana for volunteering and stumbled on my human. Have been together ever since.

Bought my first motorcycle. Been riding ever since.
Interned at Airbus’ Future Projects. 10 year design cycles were hard to swallow so I abandoned Aerospace.
Was lost.

Started reading about startups. Dropped hardcore engineering for good, decided to break into digital tech.
Countless rejections.

Emailed Roberto at InReach Ventures, a VC fund in London. Offered to work for free. We had coffee. He gave me a job as an Analyst and -in retrospect- the opportunity of my life.

With time I realised I wanted something that combined tech, design and business. I thought that was utopia. He pointed me towards product.
It has since become my abs passion.

Moved to Berlin to join Neufund, a blockcahin startup tokenising equity. Was paid in BTC. It was 2016.
Back to London as a Technical Product Manager at Nexmo, a communications’ API company.
6 month traveling then moved to Singapore to join GRAB Deliveries as their youngest SPM.

Discovered freediving. Hooked ever since.

Absolutely loved my PM career yet took a pause at the beginning of 2021 to work on my own products while nomading around the world.

I owe everything to my family, my friends, colleagues, mentors, teachers and everybody that I shared this journey with.

Onwards!✌️
