ABOUT ME

As the Founder and Art Director of Artnroll Games with over 15 years of experience in the video game industry, I specialize in creating high-quality video game IPs for diverse platforms and audiences. My background in Multimedia Design and Creative Direction allows me to craft innovative, immersive experiences with stunning visuals, compelling narratives, and engaging gameplay. I also have a strong music production background, having co-founded and managed a digital record label acquired by a major music label.

In addition to my work at Artnroll Games, I have over 10 years of experience in game development and multimedia design, covering graphics, audio, game development, and filmmaking. I am well-versed in managing workflows and pipelines in development circles and am a self-motivated individual with a deep understanding of market trends.

My expertise extends to designing products such as Customer Engagement platforms, Augmented Reality Applications, Virtual Reality experiences, and v-commerce with backend systems and real-world rewards for players. Currently, I am focused on designing and developing mid-core video game IPs with Web3 integrations for major platforms, using technologies like Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4-5.

PRIOR GAME DEV EXPERIENCE

CO-FOUNDER/ART DIRECTOR

MILESTONE 1

1. Following my graduation from SAE College, I embarked on an entrepreneurial journey by establishing my independent Digital Music Label. Initially, the goal was to promote my own music, but over time, it blossomed into a beloved platform within the EDM community, captivating both artists and enthusiasts alike. Our roster boasted an impressive array of 50+ EDM artists and sound engineers. Eventually, our label merged with a partner platform, marking a significant milestone in my journey.

MILESTONE 2

2. In my role as the CEO and product designer at ETHOS, we pioneered the creation of a local social network and customer engagement platform designed exclusively for the Greek government and municipalities. This innovative solution continues to be employed by some municipalities, serving as a cutting-edge smart city application.

MILESTONE 3

3. As CEO and product designer at ETHOS, I led the development of an innovative AR app inspired by Alternative Reality Games. It seamlessly combined AR and Image Recognition tech. We launched it at the Port of Piraeus in Athens, where tourists downloaded it via a QR code on arrival. The app offered quests to explore Athens and boosted revenue by 30-35% for 600 “test phase” stores in the Athens Market area. This success predates Pok√©mon Go, highlighting our pioneering use of AR, Image Recognition, GeoLocation Data, PHP, and Java.

RND/PRODUCT DESIGNER

MILESTONE 4

4. I served as a valuable member of the CERTH (Centre for Research & Technology, Hellas) research team, tasked with designing the infrastructure for an innovative mixed reality tool tailored to musicians and music studios. In this role, I played a pivotal part in enabling users to collaboratively create music in real time with colleagues and producers from across the globe, leveraging cutting-edge technology like the “Magic Leap” headset.
