He graduated from the Benesh Institute as a choreologist in 2012, and that year also gained the French State Diploma (DE) as a dance teacher.
Work away from the Company includes remounting Ivan Liška’s Le Corsaire for Finnish National Ballet, and assisting Bavarian State Ballet on ballets including Barra’s Swan Lake.
