American College of Thessaloniki

Computer Management and Information Systems


I studied at ACT, one of the most prestigious colleges in Northern Greece. I started as a BA major but after my first year I switched to CMIS which was then introduced for the first time. Gladly this was an excellent decision for me since computers and programming was my passion since I was a child. I graduated in 2003 with a GPA of 3.46.

My Skills


Programming Experience

No one can ever know everything. You keep learning every single day...

Coding skills

I started programming when I was 16. Over the years I handled many programming languages like Visual Basic, Java, PHP, ASP, C++, Objective-C and others but I decided to focus on just a couple of them. I want to be as professional as possible with what I do and this is why I chose to focus. The fact is that I am always eager to learn. I am always studying new technologies or improving my skills. I can handle all kinds of projects and I enjoy challenges very much!

Team Leader - Team Player

As a developer I was always part of a team. In my ealry years of working experience I learned how to work closely with smaller or bigger groups in order to bring a project to life. Later on I became a team leader which is even harder because not only you have to coordinate everyone and motivate them for a project but you are the guy responsible for their success or failure.
