Hi! My name is Christie and I’m a journalist/blogger. Originally from Athens, Greece but living in Stockholm, Sweden I’m doing my Masters in Media and Communication Studies at Stockholm University. For one year I’ll be living and traveling around Japan in search of new challenges and experiences. I am a Japan, dance and life enthusiast. I believe in traveling, positive energy and the power of ice-cream. I love telling stories. Stories are not only for children but for adults too! In my world stories can be told with words, photos and videos.  What do I do? I photograph and video shoot as I go. Basically my everyday life could be summed up in an endless series of pictures. I believe that photographs and videos are all about story-telling. Recreating real life inspired stories through my photographs, videos and texts is what inspires me the most and keeps me going.
