His career, highlighted by the 2012 Gerald Wilson Award for composition, blossomed further after moving to New York in 2016, where he collaborated with global artists and released his acclaimed album, Still Time To Quit, in 2020, securing the #3 spot in the Seattle Times' "Best Local Jazz Albums of 2020."
