Short biography by the author
"I was born in Athens, but I am from Akarnania by origin. I became a man together with poetry, in seven provincial cities, including the historic Nafplio, Ioannina and Thessaloniki. During my years of practicing law, I could not manage with writing, but I was reconnected with this love definitively and irrevocably six years ago. In December 2018, my first poetry collection entitled Hyperopia by Gavriilidis Publications was released ".
