He made his professional debut in November 2016 as Sciarrone in Tosca with Opera New Hampshire, also serving as assistant conductor under Maestro Jason Tramm. This has since led to engagements with MidAtlantic Opera, New York Opera Collaborative and the Minuetto Music Festival, where he was the recipient of an Emerging Artist award. He made his Carnegie Hall debut Memorial Day 2019, as bass soloist in Monteverdi’s Gloria a 7, under the baton of Sir John Rutter. As an ensemble member, he sings professionally with the choirs of St. Bernard’s Episcopal Church (Bernardsville, NJ) and Immaculate Conception Chapel (South Orange, NJ).
