Screen guests included deejays like John Digweed, Carl Cox, Deep Dish, Josh Wink, Dave Seaman, Nick Warren, Sander Kleinenberg, Danny Rampling, Steve Lawler, Sister Bliss, and many others. [5]

Since 2002 he has worked as a commercial and music video director in Finland and abroad. His most known work include the commercial film series for the Finnish Railways.

In 2009 he directed a music video Lose Control for the Finnish dance act Waldo's People, who represented Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest 2009. The video has been watched over 2.5 million times on Youtube. [6]

One year later his music video for the Finnish singer Chisu was chosen as the Best music video of the year 2009 in Finland at the annual Muuvi Awards organized by IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry) and was awarded with a golden Muuvi. The video won the Audience Award at the same gala. [7]
