His first love being photography, he has a multiple practice combining everyday life image capturing, travels and various clients such as architects and art organisms such as MU a non-profit mural company based in Montreal. He received a Juno award in 2010 for an album cover of Beats on Canvas created by Thomas Csano. He also did a solo photo exhibit at the Maison de la Culture Frontenac entitled ‘’CHANTIER: la Grande Bibliothèque Avant la Lettre’’ in 2003. More recently he self-published two photo books:’’SAYARI’’, about a Rajastani gypsy family and the other ‘’MAGIC INSTANTS’’ of his daily discoveries with his iPhone.
He is an accomplished worldwide dj . Performing at events such as the FIFA, Festival Internaltional de Jazz, les Francofolies to only name a few. Collaborating extensively with the Cirque du Soleil all over the world.

‘’THE SEQUENCE IS THE DNA OF ART’’
Whatever media I’m working with, I’m always building the narrative by creating sequences either with songs in a dj set, video editing or making a photo book.
