You can contact me at email@example.com (PGP) or follow me on Twitter and Mastodon, but I don’t do Facebook. Most of the code I write rests in GitHub / Gist, occasional photos on Instagram, certain animated images are hosted on YouTube and noises echo in SoundCloud. You may also subscribe to my list of very —very— occasional updates in Greek with texts, images and links of what I do and what I read.
I work as Digital Development & Policy Coordinator at Onassis Stegi in Athens. I used to tell stories and craft interfaces at citytales.eu, sometimes rendered visualisations with weRender.eu, still scarcely write about videogames on LegendaryPKMN.net and lead R&D in DEBTRON.xyz.
