Career Profile



Since I was young I had great interest in Computing and I would manage to use software and technology to my advantage. However, I took my career path towards my other passion which is aviation. In 2014 after completing my pilot training, I was offered a job in that same flight school. Due to my computer literacy, my main job quickly became to be in charge of the software used for the the control of the aircraft maintenance, where I mainly used GUIs but I had to learn query languages as well.


In 2017, parallel to my work at Heli Aviation, together with my partner I co-founded a small business: Breakout Escape Room, which is now one of the best rated escape rooms in Augsburg. During this time I had to learn and use a wide variety of skills to bring the company to life and make it successful. I had long days working and gathering experience in many areas like marketing, accounting, graphic-design, electronics, etc.


Heli Aviation went bankrupt some time after being bought by Babcock and in December 2019 all employees contracts were terminated. A few months later, while it was being founded, I came aboard Peak Helicopter Service; a company that operates a helicopter in Greece during the summer months. Where I take care of all the IT related affairs.


During my working years I have gathered significant IT experience while developing websites and programming micro controllers. This has brought me to a point where with my IT skills I can quickly grasp new concepts and adapt with ease. So far I've worked as a solo-programmer and I'm now looking forward to forming part of a team where I can contribute with my competence while I also learn in order to grow as a software developer.
