His parents started him on violin before age three. He would go on to switch to viola, also taking lessons in piano.

During that time, he had leading roles on professional stages including Omahas Shakespeare on the Green and Timber Lake Playhouse in Illinois. Recently, has sung with Opera Omaha, Resonance, the Steamboat Springs orchestra, and in various solo and chamber ensemble capacities.
