Since 2002 she has been writing, editing and translating for various magazines, newspapers and websites (Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Madame Figaro, BHMAdonna, ΓΥΝΑΙΚΑ, Time Out Istanbul in English, Fiction Writers Review to name a few).
When Vogue Greece relaunched with a new vision, her features became a central point of the rebranding and her column on vogue.gr (https://vogue.gr/author/ataxtara/) contemplates feminism, style and the everyday nostalgia of her generation.
Her short stories have appeared on Books Journal and Kathimerini and since the fall of 2020 she’s been working on the Generation G project with the University of Michigan, (https://lsa.umich.edu/modgreek/window-to-greek-culture/generation-g.html) a series of interviews of prominent creators, artists and activists who change the greek pop culture as we know it. She lives in Ann Arbor MI, with her husband and their two sons who still don’t take her fashion advice, even after years of being a Vogue editor.
