About

From 2013 to 2018, I was Associate Editor at openDemocracy and Lead Editor of the Europe section, writing and commissioning articles on European politics, economics, culture and media.

In March 2017, I was selected as 1 of 25 young ‘Idea Makers’ across Europe to receive a 10,000 euro grant from the European Cultural Foundation at their annual Idea Camp in Madrid.

In June 2017, I was an organiser and facilitator at a Team Syntegrity event in Barcelona, which sought to apply Stafford Beer’s theory of cybernetics to create democratic, non-hierarchical forms of decision making among 30 specially selected persons from across the world. The event was funded by OSIFE, the Robert Bosch Foundation and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung.

In November 2017, I was invited by the Council of Europe to lead a youth journalism training scheme in Strasbourg, teaching young Europeans how to prepare and conduct interviews live on camera.

In December 2018, I chaired a panel on the Greek Economy and Brexit at the Megaron Concert Hall in Athens, featuring several notable British and Greek academics and politicians.

In September 2021, I was a speaker at the Corfu Literary Festival, discussing the life and legacy of Lord Guilford, the founder of modern Greece’s first university.

As of 2018, I live in Italy.

My writings, mostly on Greece and Italy, have been published by the BBC, The Guardian and The Economist among others.
