He has been a “featured presenter” at many symposiums, including the American Association of Woodturners (AAW) symposiums, as well as the Utah Woodturning Symposium in Provo, Utah, and the SWAT Symposium in Waco, Texas. He has also participated numerous times in the Emma Lake Collaboration in Canada and has had his work selected for a number of AAW exhibitions.
