Petros Argyrakis. Who is he? What does he look like?
After graduating from the 14th High School I started studying Maths at the Aristotele University of Thessaloniki in 1989, but work
has prevented me from getting a degree until now. I do prefer to work though, since life is the best school you can find. I never did like studying anyway..:-)
Line of work? Information Technology. I worked as a freelancer before the obligatory 18 months army tour, then for Microland computers, LIDL Hellas, 8 years for the European Agency for Reconstruction, in Pristina, Kosovo and Thessaloniki, for SyNET S.A. in Athens before moving to the EU Delegations in EEAS first in Beirut, then in Sarajevo, Belgrade. Recently I moved to Vienna for FRA
Family status? Happily married to Vladislava Argyrakis.
Alexandros Argyrakis is of course my son, pride and joy…
Hobbies and Interests
I am a lot into Science Fiction so the books and the movies I enjoy most are of this nature. Favourite writers include Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke.
In my spare time (whatever that is) I enjoy watching a good movie either to a theatre or at home where I installed a small Home Theatre. My favourite movie? The fifth element. TV series? A lot of the,. Star Trek, Babylon 5, House MD, Game of Thrones, 24, Homeland but my all time favourite TV series is The Twilight Zone specially the original black and white episodes.
Car tuning 😉
Hip-hop, Rap, Techno is not my thing I prefer to listen to Classical music, Pop or Rock. My favorite groups are U2 and Queen.
Used to play Basketball for Y.M.C.A. but since I had some injuries I had to quit. I also enjoy Skiing, Table Tennis and a little Football but my favorite sport is Tennis.
My interest in computers became a hobby and the hobby became my profession. You can say that for this part of my life I am very fortunate.
