He participated in nearly 80 national and international film festivals, including important festivals such as Rotterdam, Tampere, Krakow, Hamburg, Edinburgh, Oslo, Istanbul, and Antalya Golden Orange with his short film "Toz" in 2005. He returned with 11 awards from these festivals.
The film then represented Turkey in the competition for participation in only 12 films from all over the world at the 2005 European Film Academy Awards. In 2006, he gained attention for the video he directed for Cem Özkan's song "Dön Bana." Since then, he has been working as one of Turkey's most prestigious commercial film directors.
The film "Aslında Bir Konu Var" one of the commercials he shot, was deemed worthy of awards from abroad and was broadcast in many countries all over the world. In this process, she received awards and attracted attention with the clip she shot for Yasemin Mori's song "Actually There Is A Subject." In addition, his other commercials, such as "Dask", "Siberalem", "Hepsiburada", "Cappy" and "Zaman" were awarded in domestic and international festivals.
