His Angele Dei, An Apocalyptic Alleluia, and Gloria, laus, et honor are some of his choral works that continue to be sung in concerts and competitions by local and international choristers. Just last May 2022, his chamber opera Corazon Negro was featured in The Imuthis Project as part of the creative thesis of director Paul Alexander Morales.
He has been elected anew into the National Committee on Music at the National Commission for Culture and Arts where he will head the Composition and Theory sector. Currently, he teaches composition and piano at the Centro Escolar University Conservatory of Music and he is also a member of Asian Composers League - Philippines, FILSCAP, Philippine Choral Directors Association, Asian Choral Association, and Piano Teachers Guild of the Philippines Foundation, Inc..
