He started water polo at the age of eight. He won national water polo titles from U12 to U19 level. His first coach, Yiannis Giannouris (former coach of the Greek men's water polo team), helped him make a good start in the sport. At the age of 13 he decided to study at the Sports Academy (Faculty of Physical Education and Sport Science) and since 2013, has also studied with the distance e-learning program of the German Sports Management Academy.
