Andreas was born in Athens, Greece in 12 of April 1987. Since he was young he loved drawing, a talent passed down by his father, Dimitri who was a Graphic Artist. By the age of 12 he knew he wanted to be an animator and one day work with studios like Disney, making the movies he loved when growing up. Then Toy Story came out and it changed everything. Andreas was so intrigued by 3D graphics, he started playing around with 3D studio Max and loved it.
On September 2005 right after he graduated from High School, he moved to England to study 3D Animation and Special Effects at the University Of Bradford. His hunger for knowledge and passion for creating led him to the top few of his class.
In June 2008 he graduated with Honours and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Computer Animation.
He returned to his hometown, where he worked as a freelancer for 4S Construction and Dojo Entertainment doing Architectural Visualizations.
In his spare time he studied the human figure, taking online Master Classes at the Gnomon Workshop and Visualarium.com, and working on developing concept characters in hope of having a proficient enough showreel that would break him into the game or movie industry.
Andreas’ other big passions is travelling, so in October 2010 he embarked on a four month trip, backpacking across Asia. While he was in Vietnam in January of 2011 he was contacted by Dionysis Zindros with an offer to work with him and his colleagues to create revolutionary game technologies and ultimately an online Game. In February 2011 Andreas co-founded Kamibu Ltd and has worked with the team to create technologies like FinalEngine, XSTEER and a game demo using these technologies, Final Promise.
