He joined the orchestra as Assistant Conductor in 2013, and was promoted to Associate Conductor in 2015, becoming the first person to hold that title in over three decades and only the fifth in the orchestra's hundred-year history. In these roles, he led the orchestra in several dozen concerts each season at Severance Hall, Blossom Music Center, and on tour.

He studied violin performance at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music (BM '99) with Greg Fulkerson, Almita Vamos, and Roland Vamos. At age 21, he was appointed Associate Concertmaster of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra under music director Marin Alsop. His work as featured soloist with the orchestra has earned praise and critical acclaim from the Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News
