He was the organizing force behind DePauw University's BrahmsFest, a multi-year exploration of the chamber and solo piano works of Johannes Brahms. 

His principal teachers have included Luba Edlina-Dubinsky at Indiana University, Sedmara Rutstein and Haewon Song at Oberlin Conservatory, and Derison Duarte at Cincinnati’s School for Creative and Performing Arts. He has also studied song repertoire with Roger Vignoles.
