Alexandros Kapidakis was born and raised in Crete, Greece. He studied in the film department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and since 2010 he lives and works as a cinematographer and colorist in Athens. 

His love for board games was rekindled during the production of a web series and he has since begun collecting and playing as many games as possible. He became one of the regular playtesters of Artipia and soon went on to design his own ideas. To date, he has signed three games with Greek companies and his first game was "Motion Pictures", released by Drawlab entertainment in 2016. In 2017 his game "Jesters" won the 1st place award at “Epitrapezio: the 8th annual Greek Board Game Design Contest”.
