I’m Alex Armstrong, currently based in Thessaloniki, Greece. I’m the Program & Technology Officer at the AMICAL Consortium. I also write genre fiction, often with Greek themes or settings.

I enjoy collaborating with likeminded folks. So get in touch if you have a project or idea that would benefit from my involvement.

I blog about writing, mindfulness, productivity and the intersections thereof. Many of my shorter posts are (fictionalized?) slice-of-lice vignettes.

I maintain a list of projects I’m working on or involved with.

You can get in touch with me on Twitter (@alehandrof) or by email (hello@alexarmstrong.net).

Totally True Facts™

  • I hold an MSc in English literature from the University of Edinburgh. My thesis was entitled “The novel as a moral genre: John Gardner’s theory of fiction”.
  • I’m a shambrarian, a word which you should not look up and imagine instead that it derives from the same root as shamanism, Shambhala, or something else magnificently mystical.
  • I like Markdown, revisionist Westerns, humanist typefaces, the smell of coffee and the prose of Borges.
