Like many Canadian kids, Hasani's first love was hockey. He started acting at the age of four.

Joining the local theater troupe, Teen Tour Theatre, in Montreal, proved to be a breakthrough moment, as it led to her being discovered by her agent. From there, his career enjoyed a rapid rise, leading him to roles in television series such as "19-2", "Game On" on YTV, and "Republic of Sarah" on the CW.
When not on set, Hasani continues to hone his acting skills through various workshops, private coaching and conservatories in New York and Toronto, including the Tom Todoroff Conservatory in New York, the William Esper Conservatory, the LB Acting Studio, and the Actors Imagination Studio in Toronto, among others.
