who & why
Half Cypriot, half Polish with a BA in Communication and Internet Studies from the Cyprus University of Technology and a Master of Science in Political Communication from the University of Gothenburg (Sweden). Following some years working in Cyprus media as a Communication Officer and a Journalist, I am currently working for a Cyprus based service provider as Marketing and Communications Coordinator.
It is quite obvious I am interested in politics, communication, social issues and other stuff which can directly affect the quality of our life. But what intrigues me the most, is political campaigning. My online activity and my Master’s Thesis stand as evidence. My Master’s Thesis topic is still concerning me on a daily basis. I find the “Negativity” in political campaigns a blessing for contemporary democracies, and a topic that more attention should be paid to. I usually write about it, so feel free to have a look at it. Also, luckily, I got the opportunity to engage into political campaigns right after my return to Cyprus. What I now know for sure is that no book or strategy can guarantee a communication victory.
Apart from these boring stuff, I enjoy eating and traveling – my close friends know where to find me during my summer holidays. I sometimes like football too. I can’t stand television, I don’t watch any series, and I rarely watch movies. I have a strange taste in music (from Nick Cave to Muse, Fleet Foxes to Queen, and from Xatzifrageta and Sotiria Bellou to Elvis).
I have launched this website to operate as a repository for my thoughts and activity, which I won’t be that regularly disseminating through Social Media (apart from Twitter which is a new hobby in a way), as I need to keep a distance from them environment. And this is due to the amount of time I needed trying to understand and interpret everything in this chaotic digital space in there. At kyriakos.cy you will find every article I have published in online and print outlets, some random thoughts on politics, social issues, and sometimes random stuff concerning me 24/7, so I thought it would be a good idea to share them through a personal cyberspace.
If you want to contact me to find more about me, share an interesting idea, or even want to check the possibility for a collaboration, you can get in touch by dropping me an email or connecting with me through my social media profiles.
