He continued his music education at TCU and UNT. He’s performed/performs etc with Swirve, the Magga Orchestra (and 4tet), Isopod, Dennis Gonzalez, Linny Nance, John Lewis, Jimi Towry, Prince Lasha, John Purcell, the Hazy Days DJ crew, and a long list of others.

Compositionally and in performance, the music of the Magga Orchestra/4tet draws on influences from North and South America, the Middle East, west and central Africa, and the Far East.
