Ladydust was initially born as an avatar in the legendary times of 'My Space' social network & evolved during the years in having a strong presence around the globe as one of the oldest, and most popular, avatars born in there.
She is holding a story of her own soon published in her own book called: 'Ladydust The Book'.
Nietche had said smth really wise in his lifetime. That in music, the passions enjoy themselves'. (Well, especially in rock n' roll, Ladydust would add by laughing - in the broader & definitely philosophical meaning of the word..
This is the reason why she studied music for some years, (2 years of drums & 1 of electric guitar & music theory at filippos nakas music school) & why she also started playing music as a jokey, presenting in every corner of the world, her performances signing as Ladydust. In the process, she followed also for 6 months the 'audio' section of SAE music school.'That weren't no dj that was hazy cosmic jive' declare Starman's lyrics right?.
So far, she numbers more than 600 dj sets, plenty festivals along with popular names of the international music industry such as the Orbital, Daniel Miller, Tricky , The Get Well Soon, Steve Wynn, Dan Stuart, Sivert Hoyem, Craig Walker, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Phil Shoenfelt, The Pierced Arrows, Mecano etcShe's been the main guest in major events such as the 'Denim Circus Exhibition' in Paris & has appeared in plenty other ones in other cities, like London, Bucharest etc. She's had common appearances all over different cities during her 15 years of touring so far, with dozens of bands (see menu: 'Dust Sets' for details).
She has finally been in charge of the music production of glamorous fashion shows, (some shown on Fashion TV channel), & has collaborated with big advertising companies by choosing the music for tv spots & campaigns of their clients.
In different circumstances she invested with her tunes from science conferences like the E life Congress (under the auspices of the Hellenic Republic), to cultural events like this one for the Nobel awarded author Margarita Karapanou, (in terms of Athens as the world capital of litterature), or big charity events like the 360 Bazaar in Syntagma square.
Ladydust also hosts her own radio broadcast, called: 'Planet Ladydust', in which she presents fresh releases from the international landscape, but also shining diamonds from the pantheon & the past. (see menu: 'planet ladydust').
It has been hosted in different fm stations (Sto Kokkino 105, 5, Nostos Fm) & it has been given as a guest to enough more radio stations & portals like: Ert (Thess/ki), Republic (Thess/ki), 88,5 (Thess/ki), Mousiko Kanali (Heraklion), Μοjo Radio (Patra), Rodon Fm (Serres), 96,2 fm (Crete), Studio E Radio (Ioannina), Lab Fm, Off Radio (Thess/ki), Akroama Fm (Kavala), Avopolis Radio, Vinyl Stores Radio, Bull MP Radio, Popaganda, To Ypogeio, Fashion Freaks, Amped Magazine (UK), More Radio, Rock Xs Radio, Bur Radio (Crete), 88,8 star fm (Corfu), Music Society Radio, Amagi Radio, Kyoob TV Radio/ΝΥ, Enforadio, Rockarolla Radio, Bleep Radio, Black Velvet Radio, Coni On air Radio, Think Baby Music Radio.
It also has a brunch which involves interviews of artists, called Tales Of Planet Ladydust Interviews Section. This is a series of 'you tube' style innovative mini broadcasts that reveal the real stories and myths behind planet ladydust's artists. Ladydust's mixcloud where she hosts her planets and other mixes, has so far dozens of thousands of listens and has been recommended and selected by it in its global newsletters among the best of the world.
Blanche Du Bois at the theatrical play 'A street car named 'Desire', said smth similar to Nietszche. She said: 'I don't want realism. I want magic! Yes, Yes, Magic! I try to give that to people.'
That's why Ladydust also chose acting. In fact acting, was her first choice back to the years after high school, & this huge time of absence that followed, had certainly created this need to spread more magic. Like Blanche.
The last years found her either in starring or in cool guest roles in international movies such as: Portable Life (NL), Receta (CA), Tere Mere Darmiyan (IN), The Final Pay Off (GR) & enough more. Also with Oscar awarded directors like Guy Nattiv in the movie Magic Men (IL).
In addition she did starring roles on tv, (Heaven's Key ANT 1), theatrical plays, videoclips, (some shown in uk & us MTV like Seal of Lilith), voice overs, audiobooks, tv spots & the starring roles in 20th Century's Fox: Rio, Rio 2, Ice Age 4 & Ice Age 5.
She's also been an executive producer in movies like The Penal Colony, which went to the short film corner at Cannes film fest, got awarded at Sydney & was in the selection of shortage fest as one of the best indie films globally.
In addition to being an executive producer, she's also been an assistant producer in the Bollywood feature film ‘Tere Mere Darmia.’ (IN)

recently (2021) took distribution in US by Bay View Entertainment and is already on Amazon, Wallmart, Deep Discount, Barnes & Noble etc. It is also available to be watched in on line streaming platforms.

As for voice acting, she has been among other collaborations, the official voice in the audiobooks of uk based On Time Books, which has already titles of its books on the top charts of Amazon. Right now, you can find her collaborating (again in audiobooks), with the platform of Book Voice.
Finally she has done some presenting, which is smth that she adores too.
