Established his artistic career by experimenting with writing short stories and then published a couple of his short stories in two books with other writers. Later he moved to Montreal and studied Photography and Art History at Concordia University. He had his first solo photo exhibition, Dans Leurs Dos, in this city. He also participated in some group exhibitions and art festivals such as ARTMATTERS in Montreal and Under the Azure Dome at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto.
