His prior field of work since early years is philosophical, novel & stageplay writing. Followed by staging his own film and stage plays and mentoring other artists to support independent and relevant theater and film art worldwide. His first written stageplay has been premiered and first aired in the suburban areas of Paris as a social critical street production when he was just 15 years old. His secondary and immense work as a film maker can be assigned to a new generation of independent film d'auteur by holding traditions to former experimental and thought-provoking film art. Last but not least: Resulting from an early certification of "perfect pitch" (absolute hearing) in the age of 4 and a classical music education in a school program for highly gifted, he is also certified as a classical pianist, multi-instrumentalist and conductor with studios running in many countries. His works as a composer and music producer from Classical to Jazz music and crossover all other genres has not only found its way into his own theater and film projects. His music label and studio REQQORD music (formerly Slo'Jam) had many hits all over the world and his compositions and productions have contributed to international and awarded Hollywood motion pictures. He even do not reject to conduct his own philarmonic orchestra compositions for the classical orchestra studio rehearsals and recordings if time allows him to do so.
