He studied music, first with Panagiotis Moralis and later in Contemporary Conservatory of Thessaloniki with Ms. Eirini Matthaiou. At Anatolia, he studied music with Prof. William Gladd.

Very important for his musical development were the long-time association and friendship with the master drummer Zach Pinakoulakis, and the brief encounter he had with the great Mal Waldron. Central in his musical life have been the collaborations with Yiannis Stavropoulos and Periklis Trivolis in the power Jazz piano trio “Nukeleus” (“Masterpieces Revisited” two-CD album released in 2009) and with Antonis Ladopoulos in the highly interactive and critically acclaimed saxophone – piano duo “Phos” (“Phos” released 2012, “Expanded Matrix” released 2016, many more albums available on Soundcloud).
He has been the pianist of the Big Band of the Municipality of Athens since 2000 and also serves as its current musical director.
He teaches at Deree, the American College of Greece.
He has appeared in many jazz festivals and venues as a leader, a sideman and a lecturer - clinician in various campuses. He has shared the stage with people like Bobby Shew, Ralph Peterson, Nils Lundgren, Rex Richardson, Markus Stockhausen, Arild Andersen, Patrice Heral, Craig Bailey, Chico Freeman, Ron McClure, Sean McGowan, Reiner Witzel, David Garibaldi, Dom Famularo, Walfredo Reyes Jr, Marko Djordjevic, Veronica Mortensen, the Athens State Symphony Orchestra etc.
