Location of origin and where you’re living now?

I’m Greek and Dutch but I was born and raised in Athens. I’m currently living in Athens.

 

Where is your special place of reflection?

A special place of reflection is something that changes with time. At certain periods it can be nature, the mountain or the beach and at other times it can simply be my bed in my room while I’m staring at the ceiling.

 

Tell us a little bit about yourself including something unique that many people may not know?

Since I’ve started working from a very young age I have developed a personality that can take me anywhere and through anything which makes me feel safe within myself. Something that most people don’t know and won’t expect is that I almost know all the Greek songs by heart.

 

You worked with some impressive brands and magazines, what is you most memorable moment and most favourite location you have travelled?

My most memorable moment was the Louis Vuitton show. I couldn’t believe that they had built an actual moving train on stage just to move some meters. It was truly magical to be inside that train and then come out and walk. I will never forget that day also because the last meters that I walked were truly painful and thought I was going to fall. The shoes were immensely high and uncomfortable and if it wasn’t for that train (I was sitting and not standing waiting for the show to start) I would have definitely made a fool out of myself.

Favourite location I have travelled is Peru. We travelled by car 6 hours from Lima and ended up in an oasis in the middle of the desert. Then the next day we travelled two hrs in the desert looking for a canyon which was absolutely stunning. I’m very grateful for those experiences since I would never know to go as a tourist.

You are also a director/study film – what is your inspiration when coming up with a narrative?

I am very into real life drama and surrealism. So, I would say that the sweet spot between these two is where my creative brain thrives.

 

How do you think film can influence people?

For me film is everything. It has such power to influence the way we think and the way we feel. I think directors have huge power and responsibility over shaping the world and many people in and out of the industry don’t know that. With that said, of course film can influence for the good and for the bad. It can be a big propagandistic tool as history as shown again and again.
