There he developed his cinematographer skills on the short film Poisoned Liberty (selected at numerous festivals, including the Marrakech International Film Festival, and received the second prize at the SILK & ROAD Festival in Dublin 2014).
After graduating from INSAS Brussels, he was asked to do the cinematography for Noah Doesn't Know How to Swim (Crystal de liége - Best Cinematography), a feature by Rachid El Ouali at just 23 years old. At 27, he has already directed the photography of three feature movies and more than twenty-five short films, and he has directed three short films: Your Father's Eyes, Yara Zed, and Suicide Candidates.
