''After long years of working at commercial business as a cinematographer, at end the of 2012 I decided that it was time to express myself by own my own independently. Following that path I realized me that music and dance related videos are mostly suitable to express my own emotions. And also the way to make me feel as a human, I start working as an independent photo journalist under the cover of Reporters Without Borders and also become a documentary film maker that mostly working on discrimination, minority situation, environmental subjects.''
