He was born in 1960. He was occupied with sports and he studied at the Gymnastic Academy but the photographic art attracted him. He had been a member of EFE since 1977. He was one of the founders of the fine art photography group "Fotori". For a long period, he was occupied with advertising photography. When, in 1981, the first color newspaper, the "Ethnos" was published in Greece, he undertook exclusively its technical support on photography issues and at the same time its photojournalistic section. He orgaanised and collaborated with a number of journals like "Amyna and Technologia", "Eikastika", "Ecologia", "Ena", "Taxidromos" etc. He organised and took part in a lot of exhibitions.
The last years of his life, he was working at the newspaper "To Vima", covering mostly the political life in Greece.
His monography with he title "Opseis Politikis" (Political Views), that was presented on 20 November 2000 at the "Stoa Vivliou", was his last work. He envisioned the founding of a Photo Journals' archive, something that he didn't had the time to conclude.
He unexpectedly died on 9 May 2001.
