I was born and raised in Tacoma, WA, which I still believe is one of the most incredibly beautiful places in the world! My childhood was mostly spent playing all kinds of sports, especially baseball, and singing. After I graduated high school, I moved to Orange, CA to go to college, where I studied Vocal Performance and Germanic Studies. I had the opportunity to travel a lot during those years and loved every second. My favorite trips were backpacking through Ireland and living in Munich for a summer. After college I went to New York to get my masters in, essentially, Opera. I lived there for three years and then lived in Denver, Colorado for 2 years, as a resident artist with Opera Colorado. I look forward to a fun and exciting future doing what I love all over the globe.
Being an opera singer, few people expect my favorite thing to do is play and watch sports. I am a HUGE fan of Seattle sports teams and I love being the only Seahawks fan at a sports bar. Although, now that I'm back home, that won't be a problem.
What I’m doing with my life
I am living the dream... Traveling around the world singing opera.
No complaints here!
I’m really good at
Singing (I would like to think), listening and making other people
The first things people usually notice about me
I am very outgoing and usually go out of my way to make sure people
around me enjoy themselves. I also have a tendency to have no
inhibitions around my friends. But if I have to choose a physical
attribute, it would have to be my enchanting blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love most types of music, but I love classic rock. I am
definitely a fan of comedies as far as tv and movies go. I will
read almost anything if I have time.

The six things I could never do without
1. The chance to be on stage
2. My closest friends/family
3. Mountains (strange, but there is something magical about
4. Watching football, baseball and soccer
5. My mind
6. A good scotch or bourbon
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever projects I am working on, my future and what will make me
a better man.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends at a bar after a long day of rehearsal.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am pretty sure I still have the entirety of the original N'sync
and Backstreet boys albums memorized... Middle school was a dark
