He has reported on the key Greek shipping community from London and New York as well as Athens and has carried out a range of other assignments for Lloyd’s List in other countries.

He is a regular participant in maritime industry events as chairman, moderator or guest speaker and has often been interviewed for television and other media on shipping topics.
