For me it all started 11 years ago in the little village of Benitses on Corfu. Starting out as a waiter, it didn't take me long to realise that all I wanted was to get in the kitchen - that brimmed with adrenaline. Using my new found passion, my energy allowed me to work 5 jobs - day and night - and achieved to pay off one of the most expensive cooking colleges in Athens. Since then I have never looked back. From the prestigious Lycabettus Boutique Hotel, at the age of 18 I competed on Masterchef Greece and arrived at 10th place as well as in front of many open doors. Crete Elounda Mare Relais & Chateaux gave me the push I needed to move to Malta as a sous chef - developing myself further. London called me thereafter and brought me to Mayfair at Dukes Boutique Hotel. By now I was able to run my own kitchen, as head chef of independently run Papillon Brasserie in Bromley, Kent.
