In 1988, he graduated with honours from California School for the Deaf in Fremont, California. He returned there after a couple of years away from school. He did several plays and ITV, a course in learning how to film and edit

As an adult, he has directed a few short stage performances. His interest in ASL performances gave birth to Rathskellar (performing arts) in 1998 to showcase the raw beauty of sign language by combining it with visual arts and pulsating music. It turned out to astonish crowds and quickly became internationally known for thrilling levels or originality and intensity, which are rarely seen in ASL productions.
