I come from Paros and as the owner of Perantinos Travel and Tourism Agency I have been involved in the field of Tourism for 20 years now. I pursued studies in Business Administration in Southeastern College Athens (my major was in Marketing). The last four years, I have been involved in promoting event driven forms of tourism and have invested lots of time and energy in organising workshops and cultural events on my native island. During these last few years, I founded the Paros Jazz Academy & Jazz in Paros Festival, of which I'm currently the director. I'm also one of the founding members of the nonprofit "Innovaros" organisation that aims to promote the sustainable development of Paros through the use of innovative technologies.
