He has appeared in leading roles and as a young artist with companies such as Connecticut Lyric Opera, Greenville Light Opera Works Lyric Theatre, Capitol Opera Raleigh, Capitol Opera Harrisburg, and The Verdi Opera Theatre of Detroit. He has also made appearances with Charleston Chamber Orchestra, Flint Symphony Orchestra, and the Detroit Festival Camerata as a featured soloist in various oratorio works.
