He then went on to win ten international guitar competitions and prizes in Spain, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Greece and most recently, in the United States at the 2011 Guitar Foundation of America, leading him to a fifty concert tour throughout America, including at Carnegie Hall, NY; Canada, Mexico, South America, and China.
