He also started playing electric bass and being member of local pop and rock bands. After finishing high school he moved to Athens to attend the polytechnic school of the city. It took him about 2 years to realize that the navigating study was not for him.

During the same period he met and played with many Greek jazz artists (Antonis Ladopoulos, Spyros Manesis, Giannis Papanastasiou, Sami Amiri, Thanasis Zervas). He has taken part in various musical projects (Athens Big Band) and played in many venues in Greece (Megaron Mousikis Athens, Megaron Mousikis Thessalonika, etc.). He lives in Amsterdam, since September of 2005, where he attends the double bass department of the Amsterdam Conservatory. Frans van der Hoeven, Arnold Dooyeweerd and Ernst Glerum are among his teachers. P.K. has toured in many European countries (Germany, Holland, Luxemburg, Belgium, France, Spain, Monaco, Portugal, Switzerland, Greece, Bulgaria, Cyprus) and taken parts in festivals such us: Den Hague Jazz (NL), Bingen Swingt Jazz Festival (GER), Amersfoort Jazz Festival (NL), Breda Jazz Festival (NL), Enschede Jazz Festival (NL), Bansko Jazz Fesival (BG).
