Born and raised in Athens Greece, Ioannis Tsouratzis now lives in Neuchâtel Switzerland working for the European Association for the Study of Liver (EASL) as a Web Content Coordinator (Marketing and Communications department).

He has a bachelor degree in Economics and a computer science degree as a Technical Engineer.

His professional career spans in areas such as programming client server applications, website development and maintenance, search engine optimization, google adwords and email marketing campaigns. Additionallly, technical editorial work and a number of photo trips in Greek, Europe, South America and Africa gave him the opportunity to work as a travel journalist and photographer in travel guides and magazines with similar content.

During the last ten years he has taken and organized a high volume of photos (with subjects ranging from mountain peeks to hidden beaches and large hotels to small traditional guesthouses) some of which have been published on international magazines such as National Geographic, Conde Nast Traveller, Vogue as well as on a high number of Greek magazines, inserts and newspapers. Among his areas of expertise are social events coverage and real estate photography.

In addition, working as a photographer and editor for travel guides, magazines and his personal travel blog/website (www.travelphoto.gr) gave him the chance to cope up successfully with tight time schedules, unpredictable travel incidents and all the necessary tidying up before preparing an article, selecting/editing images, organizing and keywording photo galleries. Travelphoto.gr also provided the platform to start exploring Wordpress CMS on which he know works on a daily basis in his current position at the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) in Geneva, Switzerland.
