Akis story in his words is on its way...
I can tell you that Aki was born and raised in South Africa. His parents are Ithacans from Stavros. He's first cousin to Nektarios from Rementzo Restaurant in Frikes, and if you can ever pin him down long enough from his world travels, he'd have some interesting stories to tell. Aki has spent quite a few years in the US working in IT, but his passion is photography. It's this passion that had Aki leave digits and bytes to roam the world with his camera.
