Until his graduation, he performed in major roles in various genres for the theater of the conservatory. In the same year, he played a protester named Pharmacist Suat in 6 episodes of the period drama Analar ve Anneler alongside Okan Yalabık and the Mad Sultan Mustafa I, in 10 episodes of the period drama Muhteşem Yüzyıl: Kösem. The following year, he played a Greek lieutenant named Leon in the period drama Vatanım Sensin, which won a Golden Butterfly Award for Best Series. He played a thief named Cüneyt in Cingöz Recai based on a classic novel series by Peyami Safa. The movie was directed by Onur Ünlü. Although many important actors played in the movie, the film wasn't well-received by critics. He played "Konstantin Gavrilovich Treplev" in the play The Seagull by Anton Chekhov at the Istanbul Theater Festival's opening. The play won the Üstün Akmen Theatre Award for Best Play and was nominated for the Afife Jale Award.
