He has won honours in many international competitions, most notably the Liezen Competition in Austria (2002), the Dotzauer Competition in Dresden (2005), and the Concertino Praga Radio Competition (2006) where he was declared the absolute victor. He has participated in many master classes led by such luminaries as Steven Isserlis, Boris Pergamenschikow, and Rafael Wallfish.
