I was born and raised in Athens, before leaving school I was playing music .
It was always what I wanted to do, so I went on to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and then on to Paris at the Ecole Normale de Musique.
In 1981 upon my return to Athens I met and worked with Manos Hadjidakis and Dionysis Savopoulos. I 've written songs, scores for feature films, television series, theatre and documentaries for "almost" anyone that asked me to "put 10 notes in a row".
Since 2003 I founded the indie record company Cantini. I live in Athens with my wife Evanthia Reboutsika and our children Rachil and Pavlos.
