I am a concept designer and character animator from Cyprus, currently working and living in Ireland.
In the past, I have worked mostly for children's TV shows such as the Annie awarded Wander Over Yonder (Disney XD), Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja (Disney XD), Nickelodeon series as well as other animated TV projects for studios in Luxembourg, Norway and Ireland.
I hold a First Class Honours BA degree in Animation Production from the Arts University Bournemouth, and have also undertaken specialised courses in Character Design as well completing the renowned Motivarti mentorship program as a mentee in the field of visual development. Since 2015 I have also been a member of the board for the animation festival Countryside Animafest Cyprus: Views of the World, taking place in Cyprus annually.
