I am an engineer, entrepreneur, adventurer and management consultant at McKinsey & Company, where I work with global leaders to solve complex problems with high impact on society. My interests lie mainly in the areas of entrepreneurship, technology, economics, international development and social impact. I am also interested in cognitive psychology and zen philosophy.
At McKinsey, my current focus is on transforming the Greek banking sector to overcome the financial crisis. Before that, I have worked on the public and social, digital, and retail sectors.
In the past, I have launched several entrepreneurial ventures: a non-profit consulting group that grew in size to 25 consultants and 8 projects in 3 months, a revolutionary product that aimed to disrupt the market of disposable cups, and an electronic t-shirt that helps people prevent back diseases by correcting bad habit postures.
I believe in accelerating personal growth by living extraordinary experiences. I have lived homeless for 6 weeks in London, bought a motorbike in Laos and rode it through mountains, rice fields and villages all the way to Vietnam, walked half of the Korean peninsula without money, only with a sleeping bag and a diary, retired to Buddhist Temples in Myanmar and South Korea, and lived 2 months in the outskirts of Lagos, Nigeria
