My first decision about what to keep inside a frame came at 12 years old: my father bought a VHS camcorder and left it at home, which was the beginning of my most extended love story. From that moment onwards,I shoot.
I started my career in 2001, as an editor, in TV news, entertainment shows, and music video clips. In 2007, I joined Exandas Documentaries, a multi-awarded production house.
In 2012, I decided to hit the road for world travel. During this time, I ran a web-based project with interviews of people, exposed photography projects in hospitality places, and documented stories published in major international media. I also met my wife.
We co-founded a video production company, where I am the Creative/Film Director, and we mainly produce videos, with modular teams as small crews of 2, to bigger units of 20+ people. In parallel, I run side projects, such as mini-documentaries, conceptual short films, and interviews of creative fellows.
Today, based in France, I maintain my activity in Hong Kong and Asia, while I work on creating European and Worldwide projects.
