WHO AM I?
I was born on Crete, where I spent the first 18 years of my life roaming in nature. I left Crete to study biology with a focus on botany. Following a PhD in evolutionary biology and traditional medicinal plants (UK), I went on to work at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew (UK), the Australian National University (Australia) and the Botanical Garden of Copenhagen (Denmark) for several years, working in the field of plant science.
After several years abroad, I returned to Heraklion, where I now live. I have tasted amazing food in many places around the world, but nothing beats Cretan food (though I might be biased). I am vegetarian bordering on vegan.
