'It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to       
                entertain a thought without accepting it'

Aristotle            

Entertaining or not, this web site aims to give a less-than-formal introduction of myself to those people who do not know me and actually made the effort to try to find out something about me!

I was born in Athens, Greece on August 11, 1976. As most children do, I went to school when I was 6 years old. My parents decided for me to attend Athens College in Psychiko, a school I very much appreciate. I finished school in 1995 and then went on to study Social Psychology in Loughborough University. There I had the opportunity to meet Prof Mick Billig, who was my supervisor in the final year project. The dissertation, which I very much enjoyed, was a qualitative approach to the study of the self-serving attributional bias in naturalistic sport settings. After being awarded an Upper Second Class Honours Degree I was admitted by the London School of Economics to study for an MSc in Industrial Relations & Personnel Management. Living and studying for twelve months in the capital of England was quite a experience! Concerning my research project, I was supervised by Prof David Marsden and I did an extended literature review on why do firms continue to use the selection interview even though the research evidence shows that its validity is low. It was then time for me to come back to Greece and join the Greek Army. At the moment I am in the 6th Infantry Regiment in Corinth where I am a Military Psychologist.

I am expected to leave the ranks of the Greek Army in September 2001 and my aim is to work in Human Resources, an area in which I have some experience through summer internships at BicViolex and WarnerLambert.

Hobbieswise one could put together a considerably large list of activities that I was and I am still involved with. However, I will keep it to the absolute essentials. I have occasionally participated in the Greek Rally Championship driving a Fiat Cinquecento Sporting and I follow as a fan the World Rally Championship. Moreover I very much enjoy winter skiing as well as off-shore sailing.

That's who I am!
