I am a greek American that has lived overseas for ten years. As a result, I have a lot of experience with different jobs. I learn quickly, love working in multi-cultural environments, enjoy communicating with others, and am flexible.


I attended two high schools, American International School Vienna, and American Community school Hillingdon. The former being in Vienna, Austria, and the Latter being in London, England.
After, I attended my first two years of University at Temple University Japan, Tokyo. There I studied Asian studies. I took a gap year and focused on my martial arts training and went to a daily intensive Japanese school, Kudan. I received my blackbelt and got up to Japanese speaking level N4B.
After I moved to the United States and spent my final two years attending Penn State Harrisburg, where I majored in communications and minored in Asian studies. There I was on the dean’s list every semester, I became student marshal of the school of humanities, graduated with honors, President of the Astronomy club, and assisting creator of the entrepreneurship club.
