Additionally, he has exhibited at the Borland Gallery in Silverton and at the Newspace Gallery in Portland, Oregon, as part of a juried show.

He is currently teaching photography, also through the Salem Art Association, to elementary, middle school and high school students, both in after-school programs as well as within the school curricula as part of the SAA Artist in Residence program.
