About Me

Hi, there, thank you for showing interest in my work.

I started my career at 23, via a television network. I organized produced and presented talent shows, raised awareness for climate change before it was a thing, and tried to help strays. Like all young people, I was set to change the world, and the world would not change me.

I studied singing in London and Athens and worked in said countries, before moving to Denmark, in my forties.

I followed my curiosity about human nature, and my passions through music, psychology, reflexology, hospitality and tourism, fascia therapy, art via academic and non-academic routes. 

I loved to communicate what I knew and found teaching to be a very satisfying occupation. Journalism and research was also something that inspired me. To share what we know, to exchange, with generosity, has always been one of my visions.

After my divorce, I blogged my professional and personal troubles away, actively raising awareness on sexual misconduct, sexual harassment at work, in a country that was patriarchal and sexist.  I was published twice and was offered several positions in magazines and sites.

I dabbled with event planning, a position offered by my teacher in sign language, which combined all my creative resources and I loved it. 

When the crisis hit Greece, I said goodbye to my friends, my home, my life and started over.

Upon coming to Denmark I became a lecturer/ teacher and continued my career in voice acting and writing. I worked for North Media, published several books, namely with Lindhardt and Ringhof, and sold some paintings in passing.

I am involved with Blessing bags Copenhagen for the homeless, created events for the Blind society of Denmark, and the Deaf Society in Greece. During the COVID-19 crisis, I teamed up with Nicki Just, to bring the news in audio podcasts for the expats in Denmark (recorded on my phone) in 3 languages.

I administer several groups and pages on Facebook and I long to seek my teeth into something new to learn and accomplish, I am bored out of my wits and am open to offers.

I also am tired of freelancing, as you can imagine.

Past Experience

Past Roles

Writer

I started a blog in 2005 in Greece. It was rated no3 nationwide and was picked up by a publishing company. This was my second book, in Greek. I was hired consequently to write for several sites and magazines. My portfolio includes Real Simple, Celebrity, beautysecrets, my Child and me, People and more.

 In 2012, I moved to Denmark and freelanced as a voice artist and writer in English (copy-writer, article writer, content writer). I wrote scripts for clients, for their sites, their videos, and their apps. In 2017, I was hired by North Media to write weekly in English in a danish paper.  In 2019, I started a new venture with  Lindhardt og Ringhof (Saga Egmont) as a freelance  French novelist.

Pencil

Teacher and Tutor

I taught French to adults from 1992 until the present day. In 2012, I was hired to work in the French- Danish school. Since then, I have substituted for 3 months at a time, in several schools as a French or English teacher. I do not have a teaching university diploma, which explains my short stay, despite the pupils and parents testimonies and letters to me when I leave. But I am ok with that. I also tutor Art and have workshop on vocal positioning,  correct accent and pronunciation, projection of voice, but also art (shading, techniques, realism etc.)
.

Voice-Artist

I studied singing and made a living from it, from 1993 till 2015. This experience  and a brief passage  in the theater world,  led to a natural evolution of voice-acting in 2010, in French, Greek, and English. I have worked for Duolingo, The Eurovision contest, Toyota, Leo Pharma, Lego, Novo Nordisk, Ganni, Calm, MovieStar planet, The Greek telecommunications company and many more, always combining my copywriting  skills when needed.

Artist

My first professional work experience was to create artwork for Full Moon Tattoo in Greece, from 1999 until 2004. I would draw commissions here and there, illustrate a few books.
In 2017, I started selling paintings on a regular basis and teaching the basics to students. Since then, I have devoured everything there is to know about art history and techniques, and I am still growing and evolving.

TV producer, presenter, Event planning, project managing, service and tourism

I produced, organized and executed the planning of 3 TV shows, presented them and ran live interviews. Interviewed Queen, Sarah Jane Morris to name a couple. Planned, managed and organized a concert for deaf rapper Signmark for Act in 2010.  In 2016 I conceptualized, planned and organized a live recording of an audiobook for the Danish association of the blind in a bar, during the 24 hour festival in Copenhagen. I have a yearly event for the homeless (gathering, triage, packaging, organizing volunteers @blessingbagscph). I work as an agent for my voice company and, before COVID-19, as a fascia therapist.

The latter may seem odd, but coming in contact with people in pain, and being able to help them gets me out of my head, makes me feel I give something back out there to the world, and it is also a form of social contact since I work mostly from home for my other activities.
