He has served as a professor at Oregon College of Art and Craft and Kansas State University. He has been invited to many significant national and international exhibitions, including: Korean International Ceramic Biennale , South Korea; Sans Les Main s, France; NCECA Invitational , Nelson Atkins Museum, Kansas City, MO.
