Pastry and chocolate has been a passion for him since childhood. He had nobody in his family working in something similar, and being an only child he loved to sneak in the kitchen and make whatever recipes he could find ingredients for since the age of 8, while both of his parents worked. Another passion of him was Chemistry though, so he took his degree as a chemist from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. After shortly working as a chemist, although he loved it, he couldn't stop thinking he would prefer to work on a different kind of lab, one in which, art and chemistry became one, and the result would make people smile. So he studied Pastry in Le Monde Culinary and Tourism College in Athens and then he left for Paris to continue his studies and work, at Ecole Lenôtre in Paris. He has worked in many hospitality outlets, hotels and restaurants and now he owns his own consulting business NZ Dessert Designers along with his partner chef Zissis Goudas. Their business is responsible for designing dessert menus, recipe and specialty products R&D for international customers like boutiques, hotels, pastry shop chains and food industries, and also Pastry Seminars and training. For the last 9 years he also works as a Pastry, Chocolate and Food science professor in the very school he started from, Le Monde College. In March 2022, he realized his Chocolate dream by winning the title of the SE Europe Chocolate Master, in the World Chocolate Masters Competition. Chocolate has always been his passion and muse and being recognized as a Master Chocolatier in an international level is no less than worth every effort. 
In his classes he is focusing on art, technique and deep explanation of what happens behind the recipes, as it is very important to him for pastry chefs or pastry lovers to understand every aspect of the process. The science behind pastry and chocolate art can be a powerful tool, when creating or cooking any type or recipe."
