Since the beginning of the 90’s, he stands out with his minimalist approach in the realization of his scenographic works, according to the principle “less is more”, the works conceived by him bring out the essence of the whole concept of the show.

He successfully integrated this element in his creation, in various forms: live image, animation, real-time video effects, video mapping, ghost pepper effect and more.
Throughout his career, he has collaborated with numerous theatres and high-rated artists, many of the performances resulting from these collaborations being presented at national festivals and abroad and they were rewarded with important prices.
