Nikos Arvanitis

Nikos Arvanitis is based in Athens Greece. His degree in statistics wasn’t enough to keep him from pursuing a career in abusing guitars and trying to fit too many pedals on a medium-sized board. Apart from participating in a number of musical projects and working as a session guitarist, he spends most of his free time wearing boxing gloves and receiving therapy from his dogs.
