He continued his music study at the University of Miami and The Manhatten School of Music. He has been active as a performer. He toured with the show "Barnham" for a year and has been active with the Meridian Arts Ensemble. He has performed in Europe, Japan, South America, as well as throughout the United States. He met his wife, the lovely Laine, while touring Brazil. She is currently a blossoming Realator in upstate NY. He currently is an Associate Professor for SUNY in Fredonia, NY.
