After earning a degree in information and technology (IT), he started his career as photographer. He started traveling around the world. During his trip to Madagascar and Palestine, he made "authentic" reportage, capturing through his lens moments of life of the people living in those tormented countries. In 2008 he moved to New York to pursue his dream.
