Hey Andreas Sup!

It wouldn't hurt to try. Orthodox Bishops are supposed to be accessible to the people they shepherd.

Give it a try. I once wrote to an Orthodox Bishop and received a very prompt response.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Just remember to be very careful with your spelling as he is a university professor. ;)

8 years later your letter can finally be sent. I would have recommending a message in a bottle for faster delivery but eh.
