Hi stranger, I'm

George Karabassis

Thank you for stopping by!

Get to know me!

I'm a Greek student, currently studying Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Edinburgh.

I was born in London (holding a British Citizenship), from Greek parents. At 4, we moved to Greece to be closer with my grandparents and I grew up in the south of Athens. At 16, me and my parents moved to Kent and I completed my higher education (A Levels), where I eventually moved to Edinburgh to study Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence.

During my study, I explored multiple things, including being part of multiple student societies, such as HypED, a student lead project based at the University of Edinburgh with aim to create the first Hyperloop transportation system in the UK, volunteered as a student representative in my 2nd year and being accepted to J.P. Morgan Spring week programme full of activities and work shadowing.

While not studying, I enjoy working on cool ideas I come up with. For instance, I created the most detailed vaccine & Covid-19 tracking website in May 2020, which received more than 30 Million visits which was also picked up by the news. I also found myself with some great people when I participated in a Coding & Innovation type of competition (Hackathon) in summer 2020. Together me and my team won and got recognized by Google. Since October 2021, I started working as a Web Developer Freelancer alongside my studies, where I helped 100s of clients around the globe, from offering programming lessons to developing full-scale web applications by converting their ideas into a reality.

My strongest passion is converting cool ideas into a reality with the aim to help people make their lives better and easier. I am always looking forward to my next challenge!

Say hi, if you love my journey and what I'm doing!

Personal work

What do I do in my spare time? I love doing individual work to improve my skills in a particular area.


I enjoy creating artwork and animations, mainly when it comes to video game design and creating designs of how a project may roughly look like at the end of its production. Click here to see my designs!

I help you!

Oh, I also enjoy sharing my knowledge to others as helping each other is the only way humanity moves forward. I sometimes answer your questions on Quora.
