Woah how did you make it here? Great to have you!

Maria here. Born in Cyprus. Aerospace Engineer by trade. Abandoned it due to a love affair with tech and an ever-evolving love with Product Management.
Worked as a PM for 5 years on fintech, blockchain, communication, SDK and marketplace products in London, Berlin and Singapore.
I am currently nomading around the world with my buddies while working on software projects and ventures full-time, powered by BTC.

The best way to predict the future is to create it.

I consider myself extremely priviledged and lucky.
My hope is that through my work I will be able to give back to the world x1000 what I was given through entrepreneurship (building tech products) in the education space.

If you are interested in product management/entrepreneurship, education & learning, marketing, design and philosophy, I think we would be great buddies!
If you also like bubble tea, board sports and the great outdoors we would be the best buddies!
