He also created visuals for the director Zahim Albakri’s “Tarap Man” in 2007. He was also part of the production of the big budget musical Puteri Gunung Ledang Season 3 and also Mahsuri, both performed at Istana Budaya.In 2008, he was involved in a theatre exchange program, involving York Theatre Royal and Soho Theatre from the UK. This exchange brought together an eclectic group of young artistic minds to create and perform pieces relating to their surrounding and memories. This project was partly sponsored by The Commonwealth Foundation.He had his first group exhibition at Valentine Willie Fine Art for the show Rock Kaka, where he collaborated with Callen Tham to create a home-made analog projector using common house hold materials. This projector involves user interaction to create the moving visuals on the wall.
