He photographed all over the world. His work was published and exhibited internationally (New York; Chicago; Canada; Greece; India). While photographing the island of Crete (Greece) for a book cover in 2002, he became interested in making a documentary on the island. Drawing on his previous experience in working with video (Ryerson University; as well as an ongoing sideline in video-art pieces) he proceeded to shoot (digital), edit (Final Cut Pro), and finish two successive documentary films, the first of which (Faces of Myth) played in several festivals to good notices, and the second of which (Mimetoliths) was finished in October 2005.
