I started my recording career while a student at the University of Maryland, where I produced CARA nominated tracks for my college a cappella group, Faux Paz. After graduating with an interesting but unrelated degree in Criminology, I went on to study at Omega Studio's School of Applied Recording Arts and Sciences, and subsequently founded DG Productions in 2009. Since then I have created audio and video content for live concerts, studio recordings, recitals, webcasts, weddings, and more. I have been singing professionally for over 20 years which I believe brings a unique ear to all my recordings, particularly when working with other singers.
My singing career began over 20 years ago at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in Baltimore, MD where I sang as a boy soprano under the direction of the late Robert Twynham. I continued singing at the University of Maryland, first in the award winning co-ed a cappella group Faux Paz, and then as a baritone in the University of Maryland Chorale under Edward Maclary.
Over the years I have had the privilege of performing with a large variety of organizations including Washington National Opera, Washington Master Chorale, Concert Artists of Baltimore, Maryland Lyric Opera, The Washington Chorus, National Symphony Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, The Tallis Scholars, and The Rolling Stones. I have also traveled extensively, performing in concert venues and Cathedrals in New York (Carnegie Hall), Puerto Rico (Luis Ferreira Performing Arts Center), England (Wells Cathedral), Germany (Thomaskirche), and Washington, DC (Verizon Center, Kennedy Center, Strathmore, and Wolf Trap).
