He holds a DM and MM in Organ Performance, an MA in Music, and a Certificate of Specialized Studies in Early Music from Florida State University, as well as a Bachelor’s degree in Music from Western Kentucky University in his hometown of Bowling Green, KY. During his time at WKU, he was the keyboardist for the Symphony, which toured in China in the summer of 2013, and was the student carillonneur for WKU's Guthrie Bell Tower. He has previously held organist positions at major churches in Bowling Green, KY and Quincy, FL. He is also a baritone, having sung with the Southern Kentucky Choral Society, the Orchestra Kentucky Chorale, and FSU’s Cantores Musicae Antiquae, and he has performed on a variety of early keyboard and wind instruments in FSU’s Collegium Musicum and Baroque Ensemble, including positive and portative organs, regal, harpsichord, recorder, crumhorn, shawm, rackett, and sackbut. He is also a Sacred Harp singer. In 2018 he was awarded the E.
