He has performed on live radio broadcasts in Israel and on WGBH radio in Boston.

He has performed solo and chamber music recitals throughout the United States and in Europe. During the 2001-2002 season, he was the pianist for the Garth Newel Piano Quartet, performing concerts in Virginia and on tour in Sicily, Italy. From 1997-2000 he was the pianist/keyboardist for the New World Symphony under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas.

He has recorded a solo CD of 20th Century American music, and a CD of orchestral music by Steven Mackey on the RCA-BMG label as a member of the New World Symphony. His recording of piano quartets of Dvorak and Martinu with the Garth Newel Piano Quartet has just won "Best Classical Album of 2004" in the Just Plain Folks Music Awards.
