He earned a Bachelor of Music in guitar performance under the direction of Dr. Matthew Dunne at the University of Texas at San Antonio and a Master of Music and a Doctor of Musical Arts under Adam Holzman at the University of Texas at Austin. In 2006, he completed his fourth year of studies with legendary guitarist Oscar Ghiglia at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena, Italy. He has also studied with Pepe Romero, David Russell, Eliot Fisk, Sharon Isbin, Aaron Shearer, Leo Brouwer, Ricardo Cobo, Bruce Holzman and others in master class settings and has studied composition and musical arranging with Donald Grantham, James Balentine, and David Heuser.
