He was born in the UK to a Cypriot father and an Irish mother. Having graduated from the Law School, he decided not to practice the profession, escaping to Greece ‘to learn the language’.
Between 1990 and 1999, he worked as a teacher and later as a translator and a teacher trainer in provincial towns around Greece. Since 2000, he lives in Athens, and has devoted himself to translating a wide range of material: from folk songs and Medieval poems to contemporary literature, historical texts and art criticism.
He is proud to have been involved in all the productions of the 'Domna Samiou Greek Folk Music Association' since 2006.
