"Digital stories, immersive visuals and emotional experiences; what inspires my curious mind for exploring every detail with big passion and imagination."

Intro

I’m a Creative Director, a Digital Designer & Digital Artist born and raised in sunny Cyprus, currently the Co-Founder & Creative Director of BLEND Digital Agency. With over 15 years of hands-on professional experience in the digital creative industry, I had the pleasure to work with many big brands, talented individuals, and creative agencies around the globe.

Fascinated with movies, games, comic books and fantasy art since very young at age, it was only natural to follow my passion and grow up spending most of my teenage years practising my artistic skills in traditional and comic book art until I was introduced into the fascinating world of computer graphics. I’ve been exploring and merging both disciplines ever since.
