Since moving to Portland, his compositions have been featured several times on concerts organized by the local Cascadia Composers group, and he has had two pieces performed by the Boise Wind Quintet. Current projects include compositions which draw on his experience learning the koto, as well as pedagogical compositions for beginning and intermediate string players of all ages.
