He has extensive performance experience around North America and abroad, with appearances at the Schubert Club, Boston Early Music Festival Fringe events, Iowa Early Keyboard Society, the Piccolo Spoleto Festival, as well as performances in Italy, Peru and Brazil. 

He studied at the Oberlin Conservatory, New England Conservatory, and received an Artist Diploma from the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam, where he was a finalist in the Jacques Vonk Competition. 

He also creates music for modern dance choreographers in China with performances in Guangzhou, Beijing, New York and at the American Dance Festival  in Durham, North Carolina.
