He has performed at the most prestigious concert halls around the world such as Berlin Philharmonie, Musikverein Vienna, Carnegie Hall New York, Moscow Conservatory Concert Hall, Mariinsky Theater St. Petersburg and more.

He is a concerned musician, always finding ways to bring music close to people, because music is an art of communication among people. Now he teaches at Athens Conservatory, he is member of “Melos Brass” quintet and the creator of “Greek Trombone Days”. Due to the fact that the information about music and especially brass instruments in Greece is not widely available, he uses his website to write articles in Greek (and English).
