Summary

I am passionate about the way web technologies are affecting our everyday life. Building things, tackling difficult problems and working with talented people to achieve a common goal is something I enjoy . The last years I focus a lot on self-improvement and following good practises while developing software.

Currently I work for bunq, one of the top FinTech start ups in Europe. bunq is disrupting the banking sector and I was lucky to be there from the beginning. 

Languages: English, Greek and a bit of Dutch.
