He later joined Creative Outlet, under Jamel Gaines, and was granted full scholarships at the Joffrey Ballet School and Dance Theatre of Harlem.

He performed in Elton John and Tim Rice’s Broadway musical Aida (International tour in China) and was a part of Philadanco, Donald Byrd's Spectrum Dance Theater, and Ailey II.
