He studied European Civilization at the Open University of Greece and photography at the vocational training institute of Corfu Greece. His work has been presented among others in Photobiennale Logos- Museum of Photography of Thessaloniki GR, Kakogiannis Institution, Luminus Eye Gallery Walk and Walk Around Art Festival on Corfu. He is the Co-founder of Art Traces, an independent non-profit company.
In his works, he explores the sense of sacred, memory and identity. He sets out to create a mystical mosaic of places, details and portraits - hagiographies. The places in his pictures are viewed as autonomous spaces, integrated in their sacred surroundings and the minor details make him reflect on how they structure the individual and collective memory, as well as identity.
