Adrian was born and raised in Thunder Bay, ON. From an early age his musical talent was evident as he spent hours singing as well as playing the piano and guitar.
After starring in high school productions of The Pirates of Penzance, The Mikado, and Kiss Me Kate, Adrian went on to become a Gold Medal Scholar at the University of Windsor, graduating with a BFA in Musical Theatre.
After graduation, Adrian worked across the country at various regional theatres and festivals before spending three years playing Frankie Valli in the Toronto and Las Vegas productions of the smash hit Jersey Boys. It was on this production that he met his teacher, world renowned master vocal instructor Katie Agresta, and began his journey toward becoming not only a performer but also a voice teacher.
Adrian has now trained with Katie for nine years, and is one of only three instructors in the world certified to teach her technique. He is on faculty at Sheridan College, St. Clair College, Randolph Academy, and teaches out of his home in Toronto.
Adrian continues to perform across Canada, in such roles as Fabrizio in The Light In The Piazza, Edgar in Bat Boy, Dr. Madden in the Canadian Premiere of Next To Normal, and starring in recent Toronto productions of Marry Me A Little and The Musical of Musicals. He has sung the national anthem for the Toronto Blue Jays and the Toronto Raptors, and regularly performs for benefits and fundraisers around the province.
Adrian is also an up-and-coming producer. He produced the premiere of Ryan Scott Oliver's 35MM at The Great Hall, and has a slate of concerts in production around the country. His first concert show, The Sweetest Sounds, has played around Ontario and been featured at the historic Birdland Jazz Club in Manhattan. His most recent show, Any Dream Will Do, broke box office records during its premiere in Collingwood and Barrie and will land in Toronto in the spring of 2017. His next show, Over The Rainbow, which will feature the music of Harold Arlen, is set to premiere in the summer of 2017
When not teaching, performing, or producing, Adrian can be found at his home in Toronto with his wife Alexa and his dog, Sheldon. He is a proud step-parent, God-parent, and congregant at Windermere United Church in the west end of Toronto.
