He grew up in a musical family in northern Florida and attended Duke University in Durham, North Carolilna, spending countless hours as Music Director for productions by the student musical theatre club Hoof 'n' Horn.

He then spent a year as a Music Director for Indiana Repertory Theatre in Indianapolis before moving into the theatre district of New York City.

"T.O. provided a ton of invaluable, real-world guidance to our student actors. He provided rare insights from his perspective 'on the other side of the table.' We look forward to hosting T.O. again at Cal State Fullerton."
