Born in 1976 in Thessaloniki. Having the necessary support from his family began piano lessons from the age of 7. He studied classical piano and theory in Thessaloniki and continued his studies in Berlin "HfM Hanns Eisler". Alongside classical studies, he got involved with jazz, where he found new ways of expressing. The meeting with the saxophonist Chico Freeman was subversive, since it opened new horizons and contributed to a deeper understanding of this musical genre.
Since 2007 he collaborated with many musicians of the jazz scene and has appeared in numerous music scenes in Greece and abroad. He teaches at the Philippos Nakas Conservatory.
