Zunächst hatte ich mich mit den Übersetzungen (Deutsch-Griechisch und umgekehrt) beschäftigt (1990-1996).
Seit 18 Jahren arbeite ich mittlerweile als Journalist, mit Fokus auf soziale und Wirtschaftsthemen, die hauptsächlich mit der griechischen Finanzkrise zu tun haben.
Zurzeit arbeite ich als Journalist – Administrator des sogenannten «Patienten – Forums» beim medizinischen Internetportal «Iatronet“ (www. iatronet.gr)
Ich bin darüber hinaus Korrespondent der “Austria Presse Agentur (APA)“ in Griechenland und freier Autor der deutschen Zeitung “Neues Deutschland”. Ich kooperiere auch von Fall zu Fall mit anderen deutschsprachigen Zeitungen und Magazinen.
Ich pflege gute Kontakte zu den griechischen regionalen Tageszeitungen aufgrund meiner langjährigen Erfahrung und Arbeit als Journalist bei „Daily Regional Newspapers Assoziation“ (9 Jahre – www. regionalpress.gr).
Ich habe auch in der nahen Vergangenheit als Chefredakteur bei einer griechischen Wochenzeitung („Skrip“- 2 Jahre) gearbeitet.
Meine Fähigkeit besteht darin, die griechische Aktualität zu verfolgen und mit Genauigkeit am schnellsten über die Neuigkeiten zu berichten.
Ich bin Mitglied der griechischen Magazinpresseunion – “Espit“ (www.espit.gr), offizieller Partner der ausländischen Presse (Ministry of Press), Mitglied der Association of Foreign Correspondents, der International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) und der Association of European Journalists (AEJ).
