Throughout his career he performed as a soloist with Dance Theatre of Harlem, and was a principle with both the Oakland & Hartford Ballet. His love for movement and body expression led him to an affinity for Argentine Tango Performance. In 1985, her suffered a knee injury and chose Pilates instead of surgery. In 1999, he was certified in Pilates under Kim Holmes and later in Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis.
