His work on screen both locally and internationally ranges from independent shorts to full blown Hollywood productions and it also includes TV series, commercials, music videos and guest appearances. His theatre work ranges from independent plays, to big productions at The National Theatre and the L.S. Bulandra Theatre.
When it comes to music, he is the founding member of ‘SickSound Crew’ an independent label and ‘urban creative hub’ and the founding member, alongside Kent Archie, of the UNCOMMON and original music group known as ‘The Bridge Committee’. He is also the creative mind behind #GANDURI, a spoken word/slam poetry mini-series, mixing hard cold reality facts with humor and irony in an attempt to raise awareness about various issues that the Romanian people faces as a whole.
