From A to Bee members
Hi! My name is Nick and I am fascinated with the beauty and the harmony of our natural ecosystems. But the most incredible of all I find the bee society, which is the invisible protagonist of nature.
So I decided to study Agriculture Science and specialize in environmental management and beekeeping art. My destination begins from a small village in central Evia and goes to Athens to meet my partners. Such as Melissa, goes around the flowers to bring the tastes of nature at the beehive, so as we are here to offer these to you!
With several years of experience in banking sector and as a tax and insurance advisor, I’m in charge of the financial and business management.
As a child raised in a big city, I had no clue about bees. Till some years ago, when I decided to participate in a small beekeeping seminar, where I also met two of my current partners. Needless to say, the amazing world of the bees totally captivated me.
A whole society, so perfectly organized in all levels! Every member has its own role, respects the others and is ready to sacrifice itself for the rest! And as far as my sector is concerned…with an economy that never fails!
No wonder why the Royal Economic Society’s logo is a honeybee!
For 17 years I worked in airline handling service at Athens airport. Along with my job, I did my studies on alternative therapies and meditation.
Growing up as an urban kid I was very fortunate that my family had a farmhouse in northern Evia. There I first encountered the bees. From a young age, I had the pleasure of tasting honey while visiting the beekeepers of the area with my dad. Years later, motivated by my passion for bees and being environmentally aware, I started attending beekeeping classes with my current business partner, Panagiotis Skotidakis, as an instructor.
Today, with love and joy, I creatively recycle some of the packaging materials that return to us from both our products and others. It is an activity that allows me to express myself artistically and at the same time gives fresh life and meaning to objects that are turned into unique handmade gifts for you and your loved ones!
I’ve always felt mesmerized by the connection with Mother Earth and the way we humans communicate with nature. This ethereal sensation of being part of a vast, wondrous universe accompanied me since my first days as a student at the Agricultural University of Athens. It was then when I entered the magical world of bees. From the very first moment, I became a passionate observer of their phenomenal way of life; a beelover. And a devoted beekeeping teacher.
Bees teach us how to communicate as one, and how to love one another in a way that benefits both our community (microcosmos)and the entire planet.
I’m here to share this sense of the miraculous with you through the endeavor that we call “From A to Bee”.
Born and raised in Piraeus, I moved to the east suburbs of Athens when I was a highschool student. I studied Interior Desing and French Literature but found my true calling later in life as a professional beekeeper!
It all started as a hobby and soon turned into a passion. I’ve always enjoyed the chances to connect with nature and bees taught me the true meaning of connection in every aspect.
I’d love to share this with you!
