Title: Associate Professor of Voice; Voice Area Head


My voice studio consists of voice majors at Capital University's Conservatory of Music and those private students in the Columbus, Ohio region.

I opened a private voice studio in NYC in the fall of 2016, and teach there one weekend per month. My NYC students have sung at Merola Opera, Wolf Trap Opera Company, Sarasota Opera, Opera Saratoga, Opera Theater St. Louis, Central City Opera, Opera Delaware, Des Moines Opera, Middlebury Opera, and Seagle Music Colony. They have placed in various levels of the MONC Auditions, and are recipients of the Opera America Career Blueprint Award.

During the summers I teach as voice faculty at Seagle Festival, the nation's oldest young artist training program for opera and musical theater.

Voice Type: Countertenor
