His musical and acting skills have taken him to New York City and Disney World and he has done work off-Broadway and in regional theater. His Bachelor of Music degree is from the University of Miami and he is currently enrolled in the graduate program at UTC, where he will earn a teaching certificate. He is currently working on a musical based on Jack and the Beanstalk. He has had experience working with young children and teaches voice and piano.
