He came back to Europe in 2014 to study with Boris Kuschnir in Vienna. At the same time, he also studied with Rainer Kuchl, former concertmaster of the Vienna Philharmonic.

He has performed in numerous concert venues around the world such as the Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall of New-York’s Lincoln Center, St Martin-in-the- fields in London, the Flagey Auditorium in Brussels, the Shanghai Grand Theater, the Seine Musicale, the Théâtre des Champs Élysées, the Philharmonie and the Palais des Congres in Paris.
