In his travels, he has worked with local and national companies such as: GroundWorks DanceTheatre, Neos Dance Theatre, Dancing Wheels, Pilobolus, and Bill T Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. He collaborated with the Akron Symphony Orchestra for two concerts on their 2017-2018 season and has worked with Rubber City Theatre, Akron All-City Musical, and Mercury Theatre Company.
He found his way into technical theatre while volunteering with Weathervane Community Playhouse in Akron and discovered a love for video programming on the 2015 production of Ordinary Days.

Most recently he served as the Lighting and Video Assistant for Cleveland Playhouse.
