During his time at Georgia State University, he had the privilege to travel with the Georgia State University Singers to Istanbul, Turkey to perform for the World Choral Music Symposium, record the Duruflé Requiem for release under Gothic Records, performed for state and regional conferences of the American Choral Directors Association and the Georgia Music Educators Association, and even performed at State Farm Arena with Andrea Bocelli.
