I have a multi-faceted career which crosses over many disciplines worldwide. I have a deep understanding of diverse cultural and business practices, comprehensive work experiences in academia and the media as well as extensive service to the community.
My academic credentials include a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Athens, a master’s degree in Communications from City University of London, and significant research credits in Doctoral Coursework and Publications.
I am currently an Adjunct Professor of Modern Greek Language and Culture at Adelphi University and St. John’s University. The Program of Modern Greek in Adelphi was established in 2009 through an endowment I helped secure through fundraising efforts. I joined the Program at St. John’s University in January 2015. Since May 2017, I have been co-directing the Spring Trip to Greece, a cross-disciplinary program in Modern Greek, Hellenic Studies and International Management created through the Tobin & St. John’s College.
I have broad experience in broadcast and print journalism, with outstanding credentials in all facets of creating, producing, and directing historical and cultural programming, special documentaries, and news programs. I began my media career as a journalist for the Athenian Daily Newspaper “Acropolis” in 1987. In 1989, I moved to London for graduate studies, while still working as a correspondent for Acropolis. I later became radio producer in the British Broadcasting Corporation, (B.B.C.). I returned to Greece in 1992 to join the leading TV station “Antenna”, simultaneously serving as a contributor, reporter, and managing editor for numerous professional publications. I produced and hosted “Week in Review,” the first program of its kind that addressed Greeks in U.S. (American Public Channel 25 of New York, covering the Tri-State area of NY, NJ, and CT). I was a founding member of the first Greek Satellite TV Program. In July 2002, I moved to Antenna Satellite in New York as the Head of News Department.
Since 2002, I have served on the Board of Directors of various foundations to organize fundraising activities and programs, support education, and promote philanthropy and environmental awareness. My work reflects my passion for humanity, youth and education. I love Spirituality and Painting!
