He has bowed at Teatro dell'Opera di Roma, L'Opéra de Montréal, Opéra de Québec, Opera Atelier, and Opera Ontario after beginning his career with the Stratford Festival and the Canadian Opera Company. He has been heard frequently with Toronto's Opera in Concert, at many North American Festivals, and his performances have been heard on the CBC, BBC, and the NPR network.

He has been on the Faculty of the Schlern International Music Festival in Italy and returns to the Elora Festival Academy of Music in 2010.
