Welcome to HFNJ

I extend a warm welcome to the HFNJ, an invaluable organization fostering education and Hellenic culture within our Hellenic American community across New Jersey, greater New York, and beyond. Your dedication to successful concerts, galas, scholarships, and charitable support is truly commendable.

My Story

I am a fourth generation professional jeweler/gemologist/designer, a passionate educator and an avid human rights advocate. I am interested in studying people as much as diamonds and precious gems. That is why I am a certified/graduate gemologist and an academically studied sociologist. 

I participatie in many business forums and occasionally teach as an adjunct professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology (SUNY) of New York.
