He arrived in Paris in 1993 and directed his first feature film entitled Les Déclassés in 1997, which was only released in 2001 in Germany1. This film, in spite of its lack of means, is a success of esteem in Germany, where it is considered as one of the best French films of the last ten years by Hans Schiffer in the Süddeutsche Zeitung. He also signs a short film, Eternae (dedicated to his writer friend Jean Parvulesco). This one is integrated with several others which, directed by the directors of the various European capitals (among which Xawery Zulawski, Richard Stanley, Harry Kümel, Nacho Cerda ...) form a feature film entitled Europe - 99euro-films. He participates, as an actor, in various television series (Homicides, Commissioner Moulin, Duval and Moretti, etc.) and in some feature films (Sombre, The President, Première Neiges).

In May 2013, he released a small booklet entitled Arsène Lupine, À propos de l'E (s) toile (Éditions La Compagnie Littéraire) devoted to the gentleman-burglar and his double in flesh and blood: Pierre Plantard de Saint-Clair.
