He started choreographing in 2011. "Choreographing to me is movement for a reason. It is an intension guided by emotions. I want to create moods and pictures that can take the spectator somewhere else for a while. The theatre should be a refuge for the soul and an endoscopy of the mind."

From 2018 he has been working closely with stage director Amanda Ginman to develop physical theatre with both actors and dancers.
