Known as Zaf to his friends, and Zafirios on his birth certificate, Georgilas was born in Vancouver, Canada and spent part of his childhood in his father’s village in northern Greece. The cultural difference between both settings was almost 180 degrees opposite and caused him to have a fascination with learning languages and various cultures. Not wanting to assume adulthood by working full time, he studied English literature at the University of British Columbia and later received a CELTA in teaching ESL. Adventure called him and he moved to south east London (of all places) and received a Masters in Publishing from the University of Arts London.
Currently he is based in Vancouver. When not creating online curricula, he is a voice over actor and musician; the singer, guitarist and pianist of a band called Zafirios which plays live around Vancouver. Here is some of their music: https://soundcloud.com/zafirios-georgilas/sets/zafirios-demo-2015
