WORK HISTORY

Apr 2014 - Current

Content Creator

Photography & Filmmaking

Ever since I became a dad, I fell in love with photography. Gradually and as video marketing took off, filmmaking has won me over. The solo, one-man band kind of filmmaking, where I get to do everything in a “film”, from acting to directing myself.


Feb 2013 - Current

Managing Director

Weberience LLC

I currently own a digital publishing company, where I do domain management, website development and monetization. Everything I do or create for profit online is done through that. Then comes the taxman.


Nov 2007 - Apr 2011

Poker Player

Pokerstars, PartyPoker, others

I played poker full-time, building a bankroll that allowed to me play at high-stakes tables. I primarily played cash games but I have been a profitable tournament player as well. Because I quit while ahead.


May 2004 - Oct 2007

Sports Trader

Betfair Group plc

Betting odds are going up and down much like stock prices. I traded odds full-time primarily in the horse racing markets and occasionally in tennis and football markets. Cleverly enough, I spent profits on a car.


Dec 2002 - Dec 2003

Blackjack Card Counter

Casinos

I counted cards while playing blackjack professionally at local casinos. I increased my starting capital 10 times before the casinos barred me. Best time of my life. Before the bar.

EDUCATION

Sep 1998 - June 2004

Chemical Engineering

Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

I studied Chemical Engineering at AUTh. I haven’t traveled more in my life. I also quit coffee and backgammon. Eventually, I dropped out.

Jim is a great guy when he is not rivering me. He never tilts, so he loses money calmly.
