When I first visited Nepal, in the 80ties, as the leader of the first Greek Himalayan expedition I was surprised to find out that my country had many places as remote and authentic as Nepal and so the idea of creating a travel company that would promote Greece off the beaten path to foreigners, was conceived and the next year realized. Many years have gone since then and thousands of happy people from all over the world have visited places in Greece that they had never imagined before. From almost all of them I still hear the same comment: we never imagined that Greece is such a mountainous country with such wild and remote places. And I am also still amazed with the places I discover, either on foot, in a kayak or abseiling in a canyon, which combined with lots of history, real smiling and inviting people make the perfect combination of great trips – trips of a life time. I am also on the same life time trip and I am making sure that you will enjoy it as well – it’s a promise.
My involvement in outdoor activities was not at all accidental. It started through my spontaneous urge to live and act in the natural environment. However an organized plan of actions and the necessary (in conditions of long-term planning) element of patience where needed in order to accomplish my goal. Few people are lucky to be able to turn their “hobby» into their profession and I am pleased to be one of them. Now as a Deputy CEO of the company with the strongest network and the greatest experience in outdoor activities I set a new goal; To bring Greece to the spotlight through our uniquely designed products. Unique because they are adventures we wanted to create. My goal is to give prominence to the close relationship between tourism, culture, the natural environment and local productivity through outdoor activities, while always respecting the principles of sustainability. Always keeping up with the latest developments in the field of adventure travel, I make sure that our programs are adjusted to the latest trends of the industry. Therefore I aim to design comfortable journeys for active people addressing small groups for big adventures!

I grew up in contact with nature. My natural tendency for exploration and adventure together with the surprise and emotional hype of every new destination I was discovering made the “trip to Greece” my personal objective. In my country we say that “ when pleasure is shared it multiplies”. So since 1996 that I joined Trekking Hellas, I became a professional rafting, trekking guide and sailing skipper. My educational background in engineering together with my passion for the outdoors contributed to my “dream job” where my objective is to organize top of the end holiday experiences. In Greece of history, culture, majestic mountains, one and only seas and welcoming people discoveries never end !
Nothing is more pleasant than assisting people organize their own adventure trip!
Everyday we bring people closer to nature through activities that push them to overcome their selves and discover their limits.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, a step towards Trekking Hellas!

Born in Florida and living in Athens Greece, I studied tourism management in the university of Kurt Bosh in Sion. While travelling and meeting new people, I realize how little I know about life. Therefore, I am always fascinated in new stories and adventures. Being an outdoor activity enthusiast, I found that Trekking Hellas fulfilled my interests, by sharing with the world the hidden treasures of nature that Greece has to offer.
With an experience in the inbound tourism of Greece, if anyone finds themselves in our “neck of the woods”, get in touch with Trekking Hellas, to show you the magic Greece has to offer.
