He has led workshops and concretized near and far, with highlighted performances in Reunion Island, the Dawson City Music Festival (Yukon), the Winnepeg and Calgary Folk Festivals, Klezmore festival (Vienna) and Carnegie Hall in New York City. He has taught Klezmer music at the Paris Klezmer week, KlezKanada, and Living Traditions KlezKamp. In his spare time he produces records, composes music and plays synthesizer in the Brooklyn based metal band Yiddish Princess.
