Marketing & Creative Art Director for FNL
Victor Simossis was born in Athens, but has spent his life building up a reputation of a citizen of the world. Having lived in London, San Fransisco, Los Angeles, Edinburgh, and Amsterdam, he finally made his way back to his birthplace after the completion of his PhD in Bioinformatics.
In 2004, he gave up his beloved research labs for his grander passion: that of smiling hippos. Victor founded The Smiling Hippo in 2005 and hasn’t looked back since. You might ask how a holder of a PhD in a science few of us comprehend suddenly chooses the road of a web developer, creative director and now, "luxury lifestyle critic" (τρομάρα του), but that’s just one of life’s many unsolved mysteries.
When Vic isn’t engulfed in his computer screens, wirred into the “zone” of coding, he likes to cruise down the Athenian Riviera in search of the hottest nightspot and plate of food to satisfy his discerning palate.
While in his mind, he’s constantly searching for a way to leave a mark on this world.
