An active performer, he has presented recitals in venues such as the historic Church of the Epiphany in Washington D.C., the Mansion at Strathmore, the University of Texas at Austin, the University of Texas at San Antonio, Murray State University and the Capital City Christian Church where he performed his Washington concerto debut with the Washington Sinfonietta.
