1). What is the best time of the day for you to compose your music?
There isn't really a time frame or time schedule I follow to compose music. It's just a matter of inspiration. It could come when I'm in bed, when I'm driving, when I'm out with my friends and so on. That is why I always have my voice recorder with me wherever I go, any time of the day or night.

2). If you could choose, in what country and in what century would you like to live?
I think that I am really drawn to the 18th century and particularly in the U.S., U.K. or France. That era just fascinates me in all aspects. The music, clothing, decor, it's all beautiful and dreamy.

3). What is your favourite meal?
I am actually a true meat eater being Greek-Cypriot and all! I just love grilled meat with a side of nice salad. Nothing can beat that!

4). If you were a writer, what would be the main idea of your book and what would you name it?
I guess I would write a book about spirituality and healthy living, revealing secrets for a better life, bliss and wisdom. I'd probably call it something like.."I Believe in you, Believe in Yourself".

5). You had a million dollars and only 24 hours to spend it, what would your actions be?
I'd buy me the house of my dreams and give the rest 10% to a children's orphanage, or any other children charity. Children are the future and we should take care of them so that the future is brighter.
