He holds a Bachelor of Science in Music Education degree from West Chester University of Pennsylvania (2002) and a Master of Music degree from Boston University (2012). His career experience over the past seventeen years has led him to New Brunswick, NJ, where he is the Director of Bands at Paul Robeson Community School for the Arts.

He has accepted commissions and written pieces for numerous ensembles throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and is the Composer-in-Residence for the Whitehouse Wind Symphony in Somerville, NJ, of which he has served on their board of directors.
