Born in the island Cyprus to a deeply religious family, grew up amidst the liberation struggle against colonialism and the subsequent intercommunal fighting. Completing his high school education on the island, he continued his studies in Greece obtaining a diploma in light current engineering. He got married to his childhood sweetheart and they are still happily married with two children, both graduates and successful entrepreneurs in the field of Information Technology.
Due to the Turkish invasion of Cyprus he never returned to the island, emigrating instead to South Africa where he started working in a manufacturing company as a technician. In parallel he continued his studies and obtained a diploma in Datametrics (Physics and Computer Science) from the University of South Africa. He remained all his working life with the same company moving through the ranks of Manager, Production Director and eventually Managing Director. He retired a few years ago and he found the time to get involved with his real hobby of software development and design of all sorts of applications. Becoming an author was never among his intentions but, as you will realize reading his book titled "A Grain of Sand", he was left with no alternative.
