He was the doctor who served the place with selflessness and with dedication he was the support of those who needed it. After the invasion of the Nazis he developed strong resistance from the position of the secretary of EAM Lefkada. It was imprisoned by the occupying state and the post-state state. He was elected MP with the EDA in 1963 and 1964 and during the dictatorship he was exiled.
