After graduation in 1998, he began working as an independent choreographer in Berlin. His early work received much critical acclaim for its austere, radical and discursive minimalist style and was invited to numerous festivals such as the Rencontres Chorégraphiques Internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis and Impulstanz in Vienna. He was also invited to present his pieces at the German Dance Platform in 2002, 2004 and 2012. In 2006, his oeuvre branched out into several different directions, e.g. collaborations with various young hip-hop artists (Tales of the Funky - 2007, Saal A - 2008, Taste of Ra - 2009, Maldoror-Amped - 201) and two pieces on the concept of performance itself and the contextualization of dance (Posed - 2008, Eine Geschichte - 2009). In 2007, he founded BERLIN GOGOS - Agency for Contemporary GoGo Dancing as an ongoing analysis of the mechanisms of exploitation in contemporary dance.

His most important aim is to explore topics through dance that directly pertain to the art form, but also in addition refer back to ongoing and current topics of discussion in society. Along these lines, he began in 2009 with the open series Dance&Politics, which so far includes Taking Steps (2009) about life-long learning, Dance! Copy! Right? (2012) RechtsRadikal about the ring-wing female body and The True Face about global capitalism and arts activism worldwide (both 2013). The solo Baader - A Choreography of Radicalization (second part in the series Evil Bodies) has toured widely and dancer Martin Hansen was named Dancer of the Year 2012 for it by the German dance journal "tanz”. In 2014: "Abendliche Tänze - A Tanzfonds Erbe Project" about the subjective process of memory and "Hauptrolle” - a solo with Ahmed Soura about German culture.
