He currently plays in the Ventura College symphony, and previously played in Rio Mesa's Concert/Jazz/Marching band, VCHB as well as the Ventura College Symphony. In 2008, he obtained the horn sergeant leadership (3rd highest ranked) position in his band. He's never had one single director. They either get fired, find a better paying district, or Omar moves.

He graduated from Rio Mesa High School and hopes to attend the Berklee College of Music for his BM in Music Education, and Composition.

Omar is currently not working on any pieces of music.

In October 2009, Omar began his career as a Paranormal Researcher by founding Night Dwellers Paranormal Research Society. Recently, Omar got the chance to investigate the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA where he met other people in the Paranormal field. Omar was surprised people knew who he was. He is in the process of starting The American Society for Paranormal Unity. ASPU will be a society to promote Para-Unity once more. The goal of ASPU is to get paranormal teams to work together as one, and to give donations to teams in need.
