Since a very young age golf has been a part of my life on daily basis. My very first time on a golf course was at the age of 7. While in high school, I began my competitive career as a member of the Greek national team. It was a successful and rewarding journey as I have managed to win twice the Greek national championship. My career as a PGA professional starts in 2003.

I always try to play and compete in a high level standard , cause as well as keeping me fit it provides experience and feedback that I can use in order to improve my teaching skills.
