Christos was born in Athens in 1963.

In 1981, he graduated from the Evangelical Model Pilot Middle School of Nea Smyrni, where he learnt the basic elements of music theory. In 1983, he joined a band called 343 Kila Kreas on drums. 

In 1989, he moved to Thessaloniki, where he teamed up with Titos Karyotakis in the band O.S.L.T. and he started working as a sound engineer at Alpha Sound in Thessaloniki.

 In 1990, he worked as a sound technician at the Jam recording studio.

 In 1993, he studied sound engineering at Sound Academy in the Netherlands. From 1994 to 2002, he worked as a sound engineer and music producer at the Magnanimous studio of Giannis Petzikis. During these years, he was involved with the recording sessions of albums by Xilina Spathia (on their most famous albums Xessaloniki, Pera ap tis polis tis asfaltou and Mia matia san vrohi), Tripes (Krata to show maimou, Kefali gemato chrisafi, Apo ’do kai pano), Thanasis Papakonstantinou (Vrachnos Profitis, Agrypnia, Thanasis Papakonstantinou and the Laikedelica), Manolis Famellos (Kathos mikreni I mera, I eftichia ine afto) and Sokratis Malamas (Ena) to name but a few. 

From 1994 to 1998, he worked as a technical sound manager at the club Mylos in Thessaloniki, and he was also the sound engineer on tour with Xilina Spathia and, at a later stage, with Thanasis Papakonstantinou. 

From 1999 to 2014, he took part in album recordings and concerts - both as a musician and a sound engineer - of Giannis Aggelakas (& I Episkeptes), I Anases Ton Lykon and Giorgos Christianakis’ ensemble. 

Since 2003, he is the owner of the Royal Alzheimer Hall studio, with Titos Karyotakis.
