What I've been doing with music since I graduated:

Professional opera singer who is quickly making a name for himself in the classical music world. Being praised by Oregon music news for having a, “big, warm voice” and, “spot-on comic timing”. Last year at Palm Beach Opera, he covered Schaunard in Puccini’s La Boheme, and made his company debut as The Corporal in Donizetti’s La Fille Du Regiment. This year at Palm Beach Opera, he will be singing the roles of Dancairo in Carmen and Dr. Malatesta in the family performance of Donizetti’s Don Pasquale, and covering Escamillo, the Toreador in Carmen, and Harlequin in Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos. He is delighted to be returning to Palm Beach Opera and thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful season.
