    I am mostly known for beeing a volunteer fighting against the Islamic state. Following this adventure, I produced and directed a documentary (Beside Heroes). This project was widely publicized (first pages of newspapers, radios, TV shows like Tout le monde en parle, etc.). This film was done with less than 5% of the budget of an equivalent project.

    I am currently a consultant in security and in Middle Eastern culture for several official organizations. I also provide military expertise, technical advice and scriptwriting assistance for several television productions in Canada and the United States.

    I wrote two books, The Nameless Traveler, as well as The Oher Side of the Lens (a photographic book on Afghanistan).

    I am also a soundtracks composer, screenwriter, photo director and director.

    My motto: + = -

    That is to say: make more or the same with less.
