After completing his studies, he spent time with an NGO; fundraised in Scandinavia and did Development Work in a South African township for six months.

In late 2001, he returned to Greece to do his National Service. In 2003, he was in China, and spent seven years working mostly as a Project Manager, first for a small trading and outsourcing firm and then for a gaming multinational. In 2010, he moved to Singapore, where he has lived ever since, being employed in the science publishing field.
