I was born in Greece in 1969. During the period 1990-2000 I worked as a civil servant in the Greek Ministry of Commerce, while at the same time I studied photography in the colleges Focus (Photography & Video Art) and Leica Academy (Athens, Greece).
In 2000 I resigned in order to focus on professional photography. In 2001 I was hired as chief photographer for all the magazines of a publishing group. In 2005 I started collaborating with advertising agencies, while also doing travel reportage. Since 2009 I work as a freelance photographer and since 2017 as a photography teacher for Leica Academy Greece.

I am a member of the Union of Press Photographers of Greece and Phoebus (collecting society for copyright protection in Greece).

During all these years of my professional involvement I have been running projects of creative film photography (mainly in black and white), some of which have been published in Greek and foreign magazines and newspapers. The way I like to photograph for my personal projects is purely experiential and my favorite genre is documentary.

1997 Leica Academy, Athens, Greece

1998 Leica Gallery, Solms, Germany

2002 Photographer center, Skopelos, Greece

2005 Psycharis Art Gallery, Athens, Greece
